Q:

How do you clean laminate kitchen cabinets?

A:

Use a mild cleaner, and work your way up to a stronger one to clean laminate kitchen cabinets. Be gentle, and avoid hard scrubbing to prevent unsightly surface scratches. You need nonabrasive cloths, water, cleaner, a bucket and a spray bottle.

  1. Gently clean the surface

    Mix 1/2 ounce of dish detergent in 1 gallon of warm water in a bucket. Use a nonabrasive cloth to wash the surface. A nonabrasive cloth will protect against scratching and dulling the surface.

  2. Remove grease stains

    Pour full-strength vinegar into a spray bottle. Spray on the grease stains, and leave for five minutes. Spray the vinegar onto vertical surfaces a few times to keep the stain wet. Use a nonabrasive cloth to wipe off the vinegar and to get rid of the stain.

  3. Remove wine and juice stains

    Wipe wine and juice spills before they dry to avoid staining. Use full-strength bleach to get rid of wine and juice stains. Apply the bleach to a small, discreet area, and check for discoloration before cleaning the cabinet.

  4. Get rid of difficult stains

    Make a paste using baking soda and water. Apply the paste to the stained area, and leave for five minutes. Spray the paste with water periodically to keep the paste moist. Wipe the area with a clean cloth or paper towel. To get rid of stubborn stains, apply a small amount of nail-polish remover to a clean cloth, and rub the stain. Clean a discreet area, and check for discoloration before working on whole cabinet.
