Every Day Cabinet Care and Cleaning
It is important to wipe up any spills and watermarks as they occur. Excessive moisture is one of the worst enemies of any wood and finish. Mcgrath's fine furniture finish is durable and moisture resistant, but it is not moisture proof.
Clean your cabinets as needed with a lint-free cloth, dampened with warm water only. Use a very mild soap and warm water only if needed. To remove grease, use a 50/50 mix of vinegar and water. After wiping and cleaning an area, dry immediately with a lint-free cloth.
What to Avoid
Avoid the use of scouring pads, harsh chemicals, powdered cleansers or any ammonia based products to clean your cabinetry. These items will dull and harm your finish. Do not use a dishcloth to wipe your cabinets, since it may contain remnants of grease and other contaminants. Avoid draping damp or wet towels over a door or drawer front. Over time, this constant moisture will cause permanent water damage.
