You’ve just bought your new cabinet doors and want to make sure they stay looking brand new for as long as possible. Here are a few simple steps you can take to keep your cabinet doors looking their best.


Stay away from abrasive products

Although abrasive cleaning products can be very efficient at cleaning, they can be too harsh for most cabinet doors. Steer clear of using Steel wool, magic erasers and abrasive cream cleaners and bleach based products as these can cause irreparable damage to the finish of your doors and can lead to micro-scratches or the finish coming off.  Be careful when you have a stain on the door as abrasive cleaners can leave your door looking worse.


Keep it simple

Your cabinet doors don’t need expensive cleaning products or abrasive cleaners as noted above. All you need to use is warm, soapy water with a soft cloth or sponge to keep your cabinets looking like new. Once you’ve given your cabinet doors a wipe over with warm, soapy water go over the doors with a clean dry cloth. Remember to wipe up any food spills as soon as they happen to avoid staining.


Impact of sunlight

With most cabinet doors, its important to remember that if they are exposed to direct sunlight, they will fade over time. With this in mind, if your doors have a lot of strong sunlight on them, it may be worth investing in some blinds or curtains so they don’t fade as quickly.


Avoid Moisture

When it comes to your cabinet doors, its important to keep them free of moisture to avoid damage to the wood over time. Even through most doors are made from HMR (Highly Moisture Resistant) materials, its always best to avoid excessive moisture. If there are any spills on your cabinets, simply wipe them up straight away, this includes spills on the bench tops to prevent liquid from dripping down into your cabinet. Remember to avoid hanging wet tea towels over your cabinet doors to dry as the moisture can cause issues.
