Cherry wood cabinets make a beautiful addition to any kitchen and can last many years when properly maintained. However, like most kitchen items, these cabinets are magnets for buildup that develop due to flying grease, sticky fingers, and everyday dust and debris.
We tried four cabinet cleaners — two spray formulas, a plant-based product, and a traditional oil soap — to find the best tool for the job.
I am having a terrible time finding a good cleaning product to work on cabinets where the kitchen really gets a good work-out. Do you have any recommendations? This product works great on Brazilian cherry floors but was wondering if someone has actually tried in on their kitchen cabinets.
Grime, grease and grunge on kitchen cabinets don’t stand a chance with these tips from DIY Network.
The rich color of cherry wood deepens with age, but if cherry cabinets aren’t properly cleaned, the wood becomes cloudy or streaked.
I want to sell my mother’s home and her cherry cabinets need to be cleaned. The house has not been occupied for some time and the cabinets have become coated with a sticky substance and are dull. Otherwise, they are in good condition.
When you choose painted Cleaning Cherry Kitchen Cabinets, they will usually be assembled with materials that accept and hold paint well, such as poplar, veneered plywood or MDF. The key is having a nice, flat surface, free of knots and heavy grain patterns. Some cabinet manufacturers perform all the finishing work on their cabinets in-house. At Canyon Creek, an elaborate system of spray booths, ovens and an overhead drying line make it possible to finish hundreds of cabinets a day. Cabinets leave the plant boxed and ready for installation.
The kind of paint used on your Cleaning Cherry Kitchen Cabinets will impact how they look, how they wear, how much they chip and whether they are resistant to water. When purchasing a stock or semi-custom cabinet, ask what kind of paint is used and if there are other options. There are many paint options: oil- or water-based paints that may or may not include alkyd resins to help with curing, and even solid-body conversion varnishes. Having an extended conversation about the options and their impacts (off-gassing, longevity etc.) might be helpful. Earlier this year I looked into using a zero-VOC (volatile organic compounds) paint on some custom cabinets, but received less-than-positive feedback from the paint shop about using it. Using a low-VOC paint instead yielded good results. Paint companies are constantly working on formulating coatings with fewer VOCs, and as time goes on, they will only get better, so look at all of your options.
