Remove all contents from inside the cabinets. If the mold is present only outside the cabinets, skip this step.
Fill a spray bottle with water. Saturate the surface mold with the water. Wipe the mold off the cabinets with a damp cloth. This will lessen the chance of mold spores being released in the air during the cleaning process.
Fill a bucket with 1 gallon of warm water. Add 1/4 cup of bleach and 2 drops of liquid dish soap. Mix thoroughly with a wooden spoon.
Saturate a sponge in the mixture. Hold the sponge over the bucket and wring out the excess liquid. The sponge should be damp, not soggy.
Scrub the cabinets gently with the sponge. When the sponge becomes dirty or dry, submerge it in the solution, and wring out the excess liquid.
Continue scrubbing the cabinets until all mold is removed. Rinse the cabinets by wiping with a clean, damp cloth. Allow the cabinets to air-dry. Point fans in the direction of the cabinets to speed up the drying process.
