Nothing rejuvenates a kitchen like a thorough deep cleaning. However, when it comes to kitchen cabinets, an ordinary wipe-down just isn't enough. For old kitchen cabinets in particular, you need to go the extra mile with a thorough deep cleaning and restoration. If you’re still not happy with how they look after a deep clean, 27EStore offers great kitchen cabinets from tall cabinets with doors to base or wall cabinets!

Steps for Cleaning Old Cabinets

Step 1: Preparation

The first step in any deep cleaning is to remove everything that is inside your cabinets. This includes dishes, utensils, food items, etc. Once everything is taken out from the cabinets, give them a quick once-over with a dry cloth or vacuum to make sure all crumbs and debris are gone before moving to the next step. 

Depending on the type of material the cabinets are made of, you may need an all-purpose cleaner, upholstery shampoo, or a wood cleaner. Using the right cleaning product for your cabinets' material is crucial to avoid any accidental damage or discoloration. Always read the labels thoroughly and wear protective gloves during cleaning, just in case.

Step 2: Cleaning

Now it’s time to get down to business with some good old-fashioned elbow grease! Fill a bucket with warm water and add your chosen cleaning agent. Dip a sponge into the solution, and wring it out well so that it's damp but not wet. Begin scrubbing your cabinet surfaces. Work from top to bottom and rinse regularly with fresh water to prevent soap residue from staying on your cabinets after cleaning. 

Pay extra attention to the areas around handles and knobs, where dirt accumulates over time. Scrub out all of the nooks and crannies until they’re as clean as possible before wiping away any excess water or soap residue with a damp cloth.

Step 3: Reapply the Finish and Polish

At this point, your cabinets should look significantly better than before. For an even fresher look, take one final step and reapply the finish, oil, or polish specifically designed for your type of cabinetry surface.

Follow the directions on the product label for the best results. Add baking soda or activated charcoal to absorb any remaining odors. This will help keep your cabinets smelling clean for longer! 

To give your cabinets an even fresher look, you can consider painting them. Can high-gloss kitchen cabinets be painted? Yes!
