Skip wiping down cabinets regularly, instead, just spot clean them.
Spray multi-purpose cleaner on a micro-fibre cloth. Quickly wipe away fingerprints and splatters on cabinets that are open most often. Wipe around the hardware too.
Make it a goal to clean your cabinets entirely once a season, where cabinet by cabinet, emptying the cabinets entirely. Dab in a micro-fibre with a mild cleanser and wipe down the shelves, the inside of the doors and door front.
Use a toothbrush to clean out crevices and dry the surfaces as you go.
Mix a paste of baking soda and water to tackle stains on painted cabinets. Simply rub the pace on to the stain and let it set. Wipe away the paste with a damp cloth and buff the cabinet dry. For wood cabinets, use oil soap for cleaning and adding shine.
