If you’ve recently had your kitchen cabinets refinished, you may be wondering how to best care for them in order to ensure that they look their best for as long as possible. Proper maintenance and cleaning will help your cabinets last longer and maintain their natural beauty. Here are some tips on how to keep your refinished kitchen cabinets looking beautiful.

Cleaning and Maintenance Tips

The most important part of caring for your refinished kitchen cabinets is regular cleaning. Dust and dirt can accumulate on the surface over time and cause damage if not regularly removed. Use a soft cloth or microfiber duster to gently wipe away dust, dirt, and other debris from the cabinet surfaces. For more stubborn messes, use a damp cloth with a mild detergent or all-purpose cleaner. Be sure to dry the surfaces completely after cleaning with a soft towel or microfiber cloth.

It is also important to protect the finish of your kitchen cabinets from heat and moisture damage by using coasters when placing hot items such as coffee mugs on top of the cabinet surfaces, and using trivets or cutting boards when preparing food on the countertops. Additionally, it’s always a good idea to use placemats under items such as vases that might be prone to spilling liquids onto the countertops. These simple precautions will go a long way towards preserving the finish of your newly refinished kitchen cabinets.
When it comes to maintaining wood cabinetry, it is important to avoid using any harsh chemicals or abrasive cleaners that could damage the finish of the wood or leave behind harmful residue. Avoiding abrasives such as steel wool will also help preserve the shine of your kitchen cabinets for years to come. If you experience any scratches from everyday wear-and-tear, simply buff them out with furniture wax or petroleum jelly; never use sandpaper on wood cabinetry!

Caring for your newly refinished kitchen cabinets doesn’t have to be complicated—it just takes regular cleaning with mild detergents, protection from heat and moisture damage, and avoiding abrasive cleaners that can do more harm than good in the long run. Following these simple steps will help you keep your newly refinished kitchen cabinets looking beautiful for many years to come!
