How to Keep White Kitchen Cabinets Clean

Let’s talk about the things that I did not think about when we moved into this home:  White kitchen cabinets.  White bathroom cabinets. White doors. White trim.  Do you sense a theme here?

When you have kids in the house, your kitchen takes a beating. And with white cabinets, every little thing shows!  There are days when I’m cleaning my kitchen, and I think back to my kid-free days. Back then, cleaning my kitchen was barely an issue.  Now, I find myself wondering what that mystery substance is that has appeared on the cabinet in front of the trash can.  Every. Single. Day.


Kitchen Cleaning Routine + Tips for Success

1 – Keep Flat Surfaces Clear

I cannot emphasize this enough, especially in the kitchen.  Get papers off the counters, and create a family command center, perhaps.  If you have to keep things on the counter, stow them away in a basket or other enclosed storage solution.  This makes it faster and easier to wipe down counters.

2 – Use the Right Tools

I often find myself juggling between a sponge and a washcloth when cleaning counters and the sink.  You know what I’m talking about – that blob of dried sauce on the stove top, or jelly that a little kitchen helper left behind.

Well, juggle no more. Scotch-Brite® Scrubbing Dish Cloths take cleaning to a whole new level.  These fully washable and reusable cloths have scrubbing dots technology, giving them scratch-free scrubbing power.

And what’s my go-to natural all purpose cleaner? It’s so simple, yet so effective.  I just mix equal parts white vinegar and water in a spray bottle.  It disinfects surfaces and keeps our cabinets looking fantastic. It also removes stains really well – coffee stains on white mugs are no match!

3 – Find Your Daily Routine

Wipe down surfaces and the sink daily.  I’m not talking about anything crazy.  Just a quick, 30-second wipe down of surfaces that get used every day.  … after dinner dishes are done?  Or later in the evening after the kids have gone to bed?  I prefer to do this in the evening, since it’s so nice to wake up to a clean house!
