Kitchens typically are a greasy, messy location in your home. Splatters and smoke naturally produced while cooking will leave a greasy and oily layer of residue on your wood cabinets. This sticky residue attracts dust and dirt particles that make your kitchen wood cabinets appear dingy and dull. Furthermore, the residue will leave a nose-crinkling odour on your cabinets. Fortunately, with the help of Awesome Orange Degreaser -- an all-purpose citrus cleaner -- you can remove the residue and restore the look of your kitchen wood cabinets.
Wipe surface dust off the kitchen wood cabinets with a damp cloth. Give the cabinets a quick swipe with the damp cloth.
Place a clean sponge under warm running water until it is thoroughly saturated. Wring out the excess liquid from the sponge, place inside a microwave, and heat for 30 seconds on high. While the sponge is heating in the microwave, don a pair of rubber gloves before taking the heated sponge out of the microwave.
Mist the kitchen cabinets with Awesome Orange Degreaser, and gently scrub them with the heated sponge. Wipe the residue from the kitchen cabinets with paper towels.
Rinse the sponge under warm running water when it becomes soiled. Continue in the same manner as Step 3 -- while keeping the damp sponge warm by reheating for 30-second intervals -- until you have thoroughly cleaned the kitchen cabinets.
Wipe the cabinets with a clean cloth dampened with cool water, and dry with a towel. Repeat the process as needed until you have removed the grease and grime from the kitchen cabinets.
