White cabinetry makes a kitchen bright and airy, but it can also be a challenge to keep clean. I have some ideas to help you out!

Baking soda is going to be your best friend if you have white cabinets. A little baking soda on a damp cloth will easily cut through fingerprints and food spills and splatters.

If you think baking soda is a little messy, keep some eraser sponges on hand, they'll cut through those same splatters and prints in no time!

For scuffs and scratches, try a little white toothpaste and warm water to easily buff those marks away.

When you're choosing a cleanser to remove all over dirt or cooking grease you don't want a harsh commerical cleanser because it could end up dulling and yellowing the finish.

Instead, try a simple fifty-fifty white vinegar and water mixture. It will easily cut through everyday grease and grimeand leave the cabinets looking great.

See just a few easy steps will help keep your cabinets sparkling white and your kitchen bright! I'm Mrs. Fixit and it's just that simple!
