  • Dawn dish soap and warm water. Murphy's Oil Soap works well too. What type of cabinets do you have? Stained? Painted? I wipe my cabinets down on a regular basis.

    • The brand I picked up is Sunnyside though I don't think brands matter much in this instance. Whatever your local home improvement store carries and generally it's a 1 lb. bag so you get a lot of cleaning bang for your buck.

    Liquid fabric softer. Apply with soft toothbrush. wait 10 minutes. Rinse brush. Take same brush wet it. Brush over the area again periodically dipping brush in warm water to remove the build-up. Scrub problem area. Then take a warm cloth and wipe it clean. Don't leave on longer than 20 minutes or it may stain depending on the type of food and varnish.

    Don't ever use pure vinegar on wood. it will eat through the wood. Permanently. ( I speak from experience )

    Liquid softener is also great for cleaning up white sneakers and tennis shoes. Make them look as white as the day you bought them.
