    Have you tried straight Ammonia? I was having trouble getting the oily black mess off the glass of our pellet stove when we clean it each week and tried a little ammonia in a bowl and my old vegetable brush to apply it and low and behold it all came right off! I leave ammonia in my oven overnight and the next morning I remove it and wipe the oven clean. Be careful of the fumes but I bet it would work! If they are painted you might want to try a little spot first to make sure it doesn't remove the paint also!

    The only thing I use is called Greased Lightning. I buy this at the local dollar store. It's a Multi-Purpose Cleaner & Degreaser. Removes Tough Stains, Grease, Soap Scum, Mildew & Much More. Also Laundry Pretreat. My kitchen is very small and when I'm cooking it seems like the cabinets just soak up the grease. I use this daily on the cabinets and haven't had any problems with even the wood changing colors ( but yet again test the surface first). Greased Lightning comes in a 40 FL.oz. bottle, and also you can purchase a larger bottle to refill this spray bottle. I'm very sentive to certain sprays and this one to me doesn't have that breath taking feeling or smell. I use this on just about everything the (outdoor grill) cleans up really nice too.. Good luck and hope this helps--
    remember like brchbell said-- If they are painted you might want to try a little spot first to make sure it doesn't remove the paint also!

    PINK STUFF - actual name - find in car parts stores - also takes out kero smell on clothes etc

    Two different items-both can be bought ar WallyMart. Both in the automotive section. First is TuffStuff and comes in a trigger spray and an aresol(sp?). Really good stuff. The second(my favorite) is GoJo, a waterless hand cleaner. Important-make sure you get the "non" pumice!! I use this on antique furniture and antique sewing machines-you literally can see the hardened grease run off. I use paper towels to wipe it off and follow with Howards orange oil or clear butchers wax(on wood) Amazing to watch a hundred years of grease and grime just run away.

    Always, always test in an inconspicous area for safety!! Actually do that with any new product.

    I can vouch for TuffStuff. Fabulous product! I also use it for pet accident stains on carpeting and cleaning my cloth car seats.
