4. Cleaning: Once you've confirmed the soap solution is safe to use, gently wipe the cabinet's surface using the damp cloth. Pay extra attention to intricate carvings, as they may accumulate more dirt and dust. Avoid excessive moisture, as it can damage the wood.
5. Rinse: After cleaning, rinse the cloth with clean water and wring out excess moisture. Wipe the cabinet again, this time with the damp cloth rinsed in clean water, to remove any soap residue.
6. Drying: Use a soft, dry cloth or towel to gently dry the cabinet, ensuring there is no lingering moisture. Avoid using heat sources such as hairdryers, as they can damage the wood.
