Cabinets are actually a pain to clean. “They’re constantly coming into contact with grease, dirt, food, and bacteria,” says Becca Napelbaum, a cleaning expert from the on-demand home service app Handy. And depending on how tall your cabinets are, there can be one more thing to keep on top of.

“Most of us neglect the tops of our cabinets because we can’t easily see them,” says Napelbaum. If you wanna give them some love, though, we’ve got you covered.
