The easiest way to clean and maintain wooden cabinets is by wiping the exterior of the cabinets down a few times a week with a clean, damp cloth. Use warm water and do not saturate the cabinets. Always dry the cabinets with a clean towel after wiping them down with water or any other liquid.

According to About.com, another effective way to clean wooden cabinets is by wiping them down with a solution of warm water and dish soap. The dish soap helps remove dirt and other build-up on the cabinets. After wiping the cabinets down with the solution, dampen another cloth with warm water and wipe off the soap solution.

Sanitize the cabinets once a week with an antibacterial cleaning solution. Wipe the cabinets down with the antibacterial cleaner. Wipe around the cabinet handles, as well. Sanitize cabinets more often if they are used frequently.
