Step 3: Clean the Handles

Take a cloth dampened in water and start cleaning the handles.

Step 4: Make a Cleaning Solution

Take a bowl of warm water, add 2 tsp. of dishwashing gel and 1 tsp. of lemon juice. Mix well.

Use an old toothbrush to clean the hard-to-reach corners.

Step 7: Wipe

After scrubbing, take a clean sponge dampened in water, and wipe clean. Make sure the soapy residue is completely removed from the handles. Repeat this process if needed.

Try this easy method to get your kitchen cabinet handles squeaky clean. Your clean and shiny cabinet handles will instantly enhance the beauty of your kitchen.
