Kitchen cabinets should be dusted or cleaned periodically like any wood furniture.

•Clean all spills or water immediately. Wood cabinets should be kept dry.

• Dust cabinets with a pre-moistened or damp cloth. Follow the grain of the wood when dusting. Wiping across the grain can cause scratches.

• Use only clean, soft cloths. Do not use dishtowels as they can contain grease.

• Mild detergents with warm water or wood polishes can be used for cleaning cabinets. If using a furniture care product, use polish and avoid silicone or wax products. Dry immediately after cleaning.
