Keeping your Cabinetry Shining

OK group - I have tried this on a coach-specific forum and not gotten the responses I had hoped for so I will try it here.

What do you use to keep you wood cabinetry sparkling clean & shiny?

If the cabinets have a lacquer (or similar) finish then it should only take soap and water to keep the finish in good shape. Check to see what kind of finish was originally used and follow the manufacturers recommendations for cleaning.

Most modern cabinet finishes will not allow an oil type of product into the wood itself. Oil types of products basically will just pool on the surface and gather dirt. I would think RV manufacturers primarilly used and still use lacquer because of it's quick dry time and ease of application. The primary problems with lacquer is it's usefull life. Lacquer will start to degrade after approx. 10 years. The best product to use on any cabinet finish is wax. Cleanup with mild soap and water, dry and apply a paste wax and buff. I was in the custom cabinet business for 20 years in case you are wondering if I know what I'm talking about.

The high temp environment in a stored motorhome is rough on any wood finish. We have had great luck with a once or twice a year application of Murphy's.

go to your local plastic supply shop and pick up some "Brillianize". It's designed to polish acrylics, but works great to shine up cabinets.

Another "thing" I use for nearly everything is "Dri-Wash n Guard". Wax and silicone will never touch anything I own that the sun hits, Dri Wash has neither, and it works...

Nothing wrong with Pledge. It's just sented wax in a spraycan. You can even wax your coach with it if you want it to smell nice.

There's no wax in Pledge (which is a good thing IMO)
