Cabinet Care & Maintenance Process

Care of our engineered doors and cabinets is simple.

Always use a cotton cloth or non-abrasive sponge. Option 1: Wipe with a damp cloth or sponge with mild dish soap. Option 2: Wipe with a damp cloth or sponge using a 50/50 mix of water and Simple Green®. (Simple Green works well on oily or tacky surfaces.)

Always use a cotton cloth or non-abrasive sponge. Using a damp cloth or sponge with a 50/50 mix of water and Simple Green®, scrub lightly for 10 to 20 strokes. This should remove most stains. For more difficult (rare) stains, contact Cabinet Transformations for vendor information.

A mixture of 10% bleach, 90% water can be used as a disinfectant on most 3D laminate surfaces. Before using the mixture on an entire surface, be sure to test it on a non-visual spot.

  • Any abrasive cleaner
  • Most solvent based cleaners and harsh chemicals such as sink & toilet bowl cleaners
  • Any cleaner in combination with a brush
  • Cleaners containing ammonia
  • If a harsh chemical is spilled on an engineered wood surface, wipe it up immediately. Then wash the surface with soapy water and rinse several times.
  • Avoid excessive moisture
  • Remove dust and normal household spills with damp cloth
  • May be cleaned and protected by any commercially available cleaning polish
  • Always dry surface with a lint-free cotton cloth
  • Emulsion-type cleaner (such as Murphy’s Oil Soap) recommended
  • Extended use of wax polishes can result in wax film build-up
  • Silicone polishes can harm the cabinet’s finish
  • Avoid spray-type polishes containing petroleum solvents
  • Never use abrasive cleaners, scouring pads or powdered cleaners
  • Do not allow oven cleaner to touch any part of cabinet
  • Do not use a dish cloth to wipe cabinet exterior since it may contain remnants of grease or detergents
  • Avoid draping damp or wet dish towels over the door of the sink base cabinet
