SW CV cleaning recomendations12/20
We use Sherwin Williams conversion varnishes for all of our kitchen and vanity builds. What is a recommended household cleaner to use for cleaning day to day messes off the cabinets? My local store cannot provide me any documention.
I always recommend a simple damp, soapy rag, then dry. Why spend the money on harsh cleaners when common soap does a good job and is easy on the cabinets.
we give this to all of our customers
Help and Information
Wood Cabinet Surfaces
Care and Cleaning of Hardware
CAUTION: Many brass and silver polishes contain harsh chemicals that can damage the hardware's surface. These polishes and cleaners are NOT recommended.
Melamine and Thermofoil Surfaces
If a damp cloth does not sufficiently clean an area, a non-detergent, nonabrasive household cleaner (such as Murphy's Oil Soap) is recommended. For stubborn stains, use mineral spirits (such as Nature Sol).

Care and Cleaning of Glass Door Inserts
Glitsa, the floor finish company in Seattle that makes conversion varnish for floors recommends a low suds detergent that evaporates without leaving any residue, unlike Murphy's oil. Before the modern "no wax floor and laminate cleaners" Glitsa recommended one-half cup of white vinegar mixed with water to make a quart of cleaner. Some people say that since conversion varnish is "acid cured" that the mildly acidic solution is better for this type of finish. Glitsa does sell cleaner for their finishes which is a neutral solution.
Really? You recommend Murphy's Oil Soap? I always heard that was right up there with Pledge as a horrible cleaner to use on fine finish.
