Our bathroom cabinets are painted white and I have trouble cleaning all the dust, hairspray, etc off the painted surface. Most cleaning products are harsh and will strip the surface. What can be used to get the grime, etc off?
I'm a firm believer in letting my house do my cleaning. I'd get rid of the white and replace it with something more practical, paint it a different color. But then again, I'm pretty lazy. (03/06/2005)
I have white trim, chair railing and moulding on three floors. It has been no trouble cleaning it now that I discovered Mr. Clean sponges, they are amazing.

Even if you paint it a different color it will still get dirty. You just won't be able to see it as well. My house is ultra contemporary & most of my walls are white, including my kitchen & bathroom cabinets. I recently bought a Mr. Clean sponge but haven't used it yet. I've heard great things about it.

I make a solution of Dawn dish liquid and water in a bucket and clean my kitchen and bathroom cabinets. They are both painted white. By the way, if anyone is considering painting their cabinets white, I would definitely hire a professional. Every time we bump a cabinet you can see the ugly 70's blue that was underneath!

I have found that a damp "miracle cloth" works great on painted surfaces - walls and painted wood surfaces. They used to be available only through mail order, but I've seen them all over the place lately. (03/18/2005)
I just cleaned my kitchen walls so I could paint them. I used a product called Krud Kutter. I also used it on painted cabinets and it worked great. You can find it at paint stores and also at Wal Mart in the paint section. (03/23/2005)
What about cleaning faux surfaces, suede, or venetian plaster with a wax finish? (09/09/2008)
