How to Clean Stained & Varnished Kitchen Cabinets

When moving out the first thing you have to deal with, after packing everything, is the end of tenancy cleaning. One of the most difficult to clean rooms is the kitchen, here you have to remove the most stubborn stains. While cooking you open and close the cabinets more than 10 times per day, this is the main reason why they get dirty so fast. The oil and grease accumulate dirt and dust very quickly. If you haven not cleaned them in a while, now is the time to give your stained cabinets a good scrubbing. Here are some useful tips that you can follow to clean the mess up in the kitchen, before leaving the house.

  1. First, you need to prepare a bucket or a bowl full with warm, but not hot, water and add 5 teaspoons of mild dish washing liquid. Use a towel or a sponge to apply the solution to the stained area and then give each cabinet a good scrubbing. This way you will remove most of the dirts and dust.
  2. You can also use a mixture of warm water and lemon juice, this is stronger than soap-based solution and will help you to clean effectively around knobs and handles.
  3. It is a good idea to buy some kind of oil soap, it will both clean and protect the wood at the same time.
  4. You need an eraser-type cleaner to remove smudges and fingerprints.
  5. Do not forget to dry each cabinet thoroughly, this way you will avoid water straining.
