I have semi gloss, white painted, birch kitchen cabinets that have started to yellow from cigarette smoke. I am wondering how to clean it without creating a dull effect.

Mr. Clean sponges will take off the stains (from painted surfaces) .. and I imagine something like Turtle wax would restore the shine.

The sponges are for all surface dirt on woodwork, they are great!

My mom is a heavy smoker, and I have to clean her cabinets down every so often. Just last week I used Scrubbing Bubbles on the cabinets.


When the bubbles are done "fizzing", you just wipe the brown residue off. You may have to use it twice for stubborn stains.
