Instructions

  1. 1

    Spray the cabinets thoroughly with wood cleaner. Allow it to sit for five minutes on stained or grease-covered cabinets.

  2. 2

    Wipe the cabinets clean with a cloth.

  3. 3

    Apply a small amount of lemon or orange oil to a cloth. Rub the entire wood surface to give it a nice glow. A little goes a long way, so avoid soaking the wood in oil.

    Wipe away any excess oil with a clean, dry cloth.
