Cabinet Care

SouthernStone’s line of cabinetry requires minimal care and cleaning. We recommend periodic cleaning with a slightly dampened soft, non-abrasive cloth and dry immediately with a like dry cloth. Never use a wet cloth that allows water to run down the cabinetry and always dry cabinetry immediately if water is spilled onto the surface. In the event additional cleaning is needed we recommend a small amount of very mild detergent like Woolite. More abrasive cleaners like ammonia or dish detergent will damage your finish.

Touch Up Kit

SouthernStone recommends including a touch-up kit on all orders. We can provide touch-up kits and/or coloring crayons for minor nicks and scratches.
