How to Clean Kitchen Cabinets Using Murphy's Soap

Cleaning kitchen cabinets can be frustrating, especially when they have a buildup of dirt and grease. Instead of spending a lot of money on numerous cleaning products, you can get the job done with just one product. Murphy Oil Soap can also clean wood floors and wood furniture safely, as long as the wood is finished and does not contain any cracks or weak areas.

Clean your finished kitchen cabinets with an oil soap solution to remove dirt and grease.

Step 1

Pour 1/4 cup of Murphy Oil Soap into a gallon-size bucket. If you need a stronger cleaning solution, then use 1/2 cup.

Step 2

Fill the bucket with 1 gallon of warm water.

Step 3

Soak a washcloth in the diluted oil soap. Wring out the excess water and wipe down the cabinets.

Step 4

Rinse the washcloth under warm water once it appears dirty. Pour the solution down the sink when you are finished cleaning the cabinets.
