      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!

      no, i’m kinda scared to since the kitchen isn’t well ventilated. but i will try it. i sure hope this works.

      me and the hubbie are both sick of the cabinets being all greasy.

      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–

      Homemade Cabinet Grease Remover

      Cabinet Grease Remover
      (for painted cabinets)
      1/4 cup baking soda
      1 cup ammonia
      1/2 cup white vinegar
      1 gallon warm water
      Mix together in a clean pail.

      Soften the grease/dirt stains with a hot damp dishrag. Using a sponge dipped in your cleaning solution, wash the cabinets, allowing the cleaner to set for a few minutes as needed. Rinse & Wipe Dry.

      Thanks from me on this one, I have tried the greas lightning but my paint on the cabinets doesnt do too well with that. I didn’t think of the purple stuff.

      hmmmmm may have to try this but will have to be when the other half is outside because of his asthma the ammonia doesnt react to well with him

      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.
