Paul talks about how to properly clean your cabinets
One of the questions I get asked the most is "how do I clean my cabinets or what do I use for it?". We recommend dish soapy water for cleaning cabinets, because that's what use for cleaning your dishes and it works well for cabinets. What you don't want to use is anything with an acid in it like a vinegar and also the products that have oil in it...meaning like Murphy Oil or Pledge because the oil shines the cabinets up but it also tracks dirt. When you're bringing dirt on you don't want that and it also prevents you from refinishing cabinets because the finish won't stick to the oil.
