  16. Q: What can I use to clean my HomeCrest cabinets?
    • Like any fine-quality surface, your cabinetry should be treated, cleaned and maintained carefully with quality materials.
      • DO NOT allow water, chemicals (detergents, ammonia, vinegar, etc.) and hot or acidic food spills to set on your cabinets. ALWAYS immediately wipe up spills as quickly as possible so they won't damage the wood.
      • DO use a soft cloth. DO NOT USE coarse or abrasive cloths or materials as they may dull the finish or leave scratches that cannot be removed. DEFINITELY AVOID soap pads, scouring pads and brushes.
      • DO use soapy water, a mild all-purpose cleaner without ammonia, or an oil soap cleaner made especially for wood components. DO NOT USE ammonia, products that contain ammonia, strong solvent cleaners, mineral spirits, paint thinner or any other harsh cleaning chemicals.
      • DO use high quality polish that is especially formulated for fine furniture. DO NOT USE wax or polish that contains silicone. Wax builds up on the surface and causes yellowing; silicones smudge and highlight fingerprints, and can be removed only with extreme measures.
      • For melamine or thermofoil cabinetry, DO clean with a mild nonabrasive cleaner using a soft cloth. DO NOT WAX and DO NOT USE ammonia or any type of abrasive cleaner or cloth.
