Removing dried food from your kitchen cabinets can you cause some problems when you try to remove it. A strong cleaning solvent could damage the wood. Rubbing too hard to remove the residue could scratch the cabinet. This solution is less harsh and will help you clean your cabinets quickly and easily.

Step One - Making the Cleaning Solution

Put on your latex gloves before you start. In your bowl combine 1 tbsp of warm water and 1 tsp of baking soda.

Step Two – Applying the Cleaning Solution

Dip your toothbrush into the solution then apply the mixture to the food residue on the wood. Allow the solution to sit on the stain for about ten minutes.

Step Three – Wiping Off the Cleaning Solution

Dampen your cleaning cloth with warm water and gently rub the cleaning solution from the cabinet. Repeat the process until all of the residue has been removed from the wood. 

Step Four – Washing the Cabinet Door

In your bucket combine 1 gallon of warm water with 2 tbsp of dish soap. Use your cleaning cloth to apply the soap solution to the entire cabinet door. Use a dry cleaning cloth to gently rub the wood until it is dry.
