You know the old saying: “Oil and water don’t mix”. But you want to know what’s going on? Oil and oil! By cleaning your cabinets with vegetable or mineral oil (coconut oil also works), you can remove grease and dirt from your cabinets. Simply add a few drops of oil to a soft cloth or microfiber cloth and start cleaning the outside of your cabinets.
It’s always a good idea to test the oil in a small, unobtrusive part of your cabinets first, to make sure the oil doesn’t have a bad reaction with your cabinets. Fortunately, the risk is quite low, and it’s a proven method for removing oil film (and the unpleasant odors that accompany it) from your cabinets. Watch the video below to see this hack in action.
