How to Clean Kitchen Cupboards + Cabinets? Cleaning kitchen cupboards and cabinets is essential to maintain a hygienic and organized kitchen. Here’s a step-by-step guide to help you clean your kitchen cupboards and cabinets:

Materials Needed:

  1. All-purpose cleaner or a mixture of warm water and mild dish soap
  2. Microfiber or soft cleaning cloths
  3. Baking soda (optional)
  4. White vinegar (optional)
  5. Old toothbrush or soft-bristled brush
  6. Vacuum cleaner with a brush attachment
  7. Olive oil or a commercial wood cleaner (for wooden cabinets)


  1. Empty the Cabinets:

    • Start by removing all items from the cabinets. This includes dishes, pots, pans, and any other items stored inside.
    • Wipe off any loose crumbs or debris from the shelves.
  2. Dust and Vacuum:
    • Use a vacuum cleaner with a brush attachment to remove any loose dust or debris from the cabinet surfaces.
    • Pay attention to corners, edges, and any crevices where dust may accumulate.
  3. Wipe Down Surfaces:
    • Mix a solution of warm water and mild dish soap or use an all-purpose cleaner.
    • Dip a soft cloth or sponge into the cleaning solution and wring it out well.
    • Wipe down the interior and exterior surfaces of the cabinets, including shelves, doors, and handles.
    • For stubborn stains or grease, you can add a little baking soda to the cleaning solution or use a mixture of white vinegar and water.
  4. Clean Hardware:
    • Remove knobs, handles, or any other hardware from the cabinets if possible.
    • Clean the hardware separately using the same cleaning solution or a mixture of vinegar and water.
    • If there are intricate details, use an old toothbrush to scrub them.
  5. Tackle Grease Buildup:
    • Grease can accumulate on cabinet surfaces, especially near the stove. For tough grease, mix baking soda with water to form a paste.
    • Apply the paste to the greasy areas and let it sit for a few minutes before scrubbing with a soft brush or cloth.
  6. Clean Glass or Transparent Panels:
    • If your cabinets have glass or transparent panels, clean them using a glass cleaner or a solution of vinegar and water.
    • Wipe them with a clean, dry cloth to avoid streaks.
  7. Wooden Cabinets:
    • If you have wooden cabinets, avoid using excess water. Instead, use a wood cleaner or a mixture of olive oil and vinegar to clean and polish the wood.
    • Wipe with the grain of the wood to prevent damage.
  8. Dry Thoroughly:
    • After cleaning, make sure the cabinets are completely dry before placing items back inside.
  9. Organize and Declutter:
    • Before returning items to the cabinets, take the opportunity to declutter and organize. Discard expired items and reorganize your kitchen essentials.
