It might be tempting to throw a bottle of bleach at your bathroom vanity and scrub away all those germs but bleach, harsh detergents and sponges can can damage your beautiful cabinets. Strong chemicals can destroy the varnish on wood cabinets and old sponges can contain particles that scratch the wood and counters. The scratches or worn areas will not only look bad but they will hold more bacteria and be more difficult to keep clean.
Avoid Moisture on Wood
It can be tempting to drape a wet cloth or disinfecting wipe over an open drawer or door while cleaning but leaving something moist on the finish can cause it to bubble, warp or peel.
Create a Routine
Cleaning can turn into a massive task but by simply wiping down surfaces once a week or spot cleaning when you see build up on the counter or dirt in the caulking between the counter and cabinets your "big cleans" will take minutes instead of hours.
If you want to clean as you go, don't just clean that one spot. If a glob of soap is on the counter make sure it hasn't run under anything that might be sitting on the counter, you don't want dried goop on everything collecting dust and germs until you finally give in.
