Cleaning with baking soda is a popular and eco-friendly alternative to harsh chemical cleaners.
Its mild abrasive properties and natural deodorizing capabilities make it a versatile solution for various cleaning tasks.
However, there are specific household items you should never clean using baking soda. In this blog, we’ll explain why you should not use it to clean these items to avoid damaging them.
Greasy kitchen cabinets aren’t the best way to feature the heart of your home.
If you want to achieve a neat and sparkling kitchen, you’ll need to show love by cleaning every part of it. Including the fixtures.
We’ll explore a few easy ways to keep grease and grime off kitchen cabinets.
Natural Vinegar Solution
Vinegar is one of the cheapest and most natural ways to degrease kitchen cabinets in your home.
Create a mixture of equal parts white vinegar and water in a spray bottle. Spray the solution onto the greasy cabinet surfaces and allow it to sit for a few minutes.
Gently wipe the cabinets with a soft cloth or sponge, removing the grease as you go. Vinegar’s natural deodorizing properties will also leave your cabinets smelling fresh.
Baking Soda Paste
To create a baking soda paste for degreasing cabinets, mix baking soda with water to form a thick, spreadable consistency.
Apply the paste to the greasy areas of your cabinets, focusing on stubborn spots. Let the paste sit for about 10-15 minutes to allow the baking soda to break down the grease.
This method not only removes grease but also helps to lift any stains on the cabinet surfaces.
Dish Soap and Warm Water
For cabinets with lighter grease buildup, a simple solution of dish soap and warm water can work wonders.
Fill a bucket or basin with warm water and add a few drops of mild dish soap. Dip a clean cloth or sponge into the soapy water and gently scrub the greasy areas of your cabinets.
Once the grease is removed, wipe the cabinets with a clean, damp cloth to remove any soap residue.
Commercial Degreasing Cleaners
If you’re dealing with heavy grease buildup, you have a wide choice of various commercial degreasing cleaners available on the market.
Apply the cleaner as directed, typically by spraying it onto the cabinets, letting it sit for a specified time, and then wiping it away with a clean cloth.
When using commercial cleaners, remember to wear protection such as gloves and work in a well-ventilated area.
If you need a full cleaning of your whole kitchen, you can also enlist the services of a cleaning company.
