No matter how hard we try to keep our home sparkly clean, there will be areas where icky and stubborn dirt can thrive. Take the kitchen for example. Grease and grime are fond of this area, most especially your beloved kitchen cabinets. All sorts of gunk can accumulate here – the older the grease, the more stubborn it will be.
Lucky for you, we are here to help! We have listed some of the best ways on how to clean grease from your kitchen cabinets. The best thing about them? All items used can already be found in your home!
The basic hot water and dish soap combo
It may be a no-brainer, but as the simplest way to remove that oily grime out of your cabinets, it deserves a spot. Fill half of your sink with the hottest temperature of tap water you can handle and squirt two spoonfuls of your favourite dishwashing soap. Make sure to wear rubber gloves and dip a sponge and scouring pad into the mixture. Scrub with enough pressure to remove grease and dirt, and wipe it clean.
Oil for an oil and two parts baking soda
Beat up that old and yucky grease out of your kitchen cabinets by fighting it with vegetable oil and baking soda. Just use two parts of baking soda and add vegetable oil to create a paste. Apply the paste all over the cabinet, its hinges, door, and handles. The oil will lift those good old stains up after softening them a bit while the baking soda helps clean it better. Let it sit for a while before scrubbing the paste off. Wipe clean with warm water mixed with a tiny bit of liquid dish soap, then dry it.
Use an all-purpose heavy duty cleaner, a putty knife or any old plastic card
Spray heavy duty cleaner of choice on the surface of your cabinets and let it sit. Using a putty knife or an old plastic card you used in stores before, scrap the greasy goodness off. Spray again and wipe it clean.
Even baking soda, vinegar, and a plastic store card or putty knife will do
Put vinegar on a spray bottle. Spritz vinegar and sprinkle baking soda on your cupboards. Watch how the mix begins to bubble up on the greasy parts. Let the vinegar and baking soda mixture sit for a few minutes. Scrape all grease off with your putty knife or card and finish it off by wiping the surface with a clean paper towel.
