Cabinet Care

Cleaning your Decor Cabinets

Treat your Decor cabinets as you would any other piece of fine furniture and they will reward you with long-lasting beauty.

The following instructions apply to all wood, melamine, laminate and painted surfaces.

For regular cleaning of all door and cabinet exterior and interior surfaces:

  • Always wipe in the direction of the wood grain.
  • Wipe with a damp soft cloth, then dry with another soft cloth or absorbent paper towel.
  • Never use detergents, strong soaps, abrasives, coloured microfiber cloths, cleaning agents with strong chemical substances or waxes. They can damage the finish or leave a residue that airborne grease will stick to. Always test cleaning products on a small inconspicuous area.
  • Do not wipe cabinets with a dishcloth. A dishcloth can contain soap, grease and other soil that can damage the finished surface of the cabinets.
  • Excessive moisture can damage the product. Do not allow water or other liquids to be in contact with outside or inside surfaces for prolonged periods of time.
  • Avoid steam from kettles, etc., being directed at the underside of cabinets or bottom edge of doors. This may eventually affect the adhesion of the edge banding and may also dull the finish.
  • Excessive scrubbing or rubbing in one location will cause the finish to be polished creating a shinier surface in that one place.

For thorough cleaning of your cabinets you can do the following:

  • For wood doors and surfaces use a non-wax based cleaner that is designed specifically for wood cabinets and woodwork; or use mild soap mixed with water, rinse well and then dry with a soft cloth. Lemon oil also works, but it will leave the surface oily to the touch.
  • For painted doors and surfaces, use a cleaner that is designed for painted wood cabinets and woodwork, mild soap and water or a diluted vinegar and water solution (rinse well).
  • For melamine or high pressure, laminate doors and surfaces use the above methods. For stubborn stains use a damp soapy cloth, rinse well to remove all soap residue and dry with a soft cloth.

The finish can wear off on the cabinet doors used the most often, due to homeowners not using the handles on the doors and drawer fronts. Over time, the oil from your hand will break down the finish.
