Kitchen Help

Grease inevitably ends up on kitchen cabinets, especially those above or next to the range. You can buy a cleaner with orange oil to wipe off the grease, or you can use a standard grease-cutting dishwashing detergent. The detergent will cut through the grease on the cabinets just like it does with dishes.


Mix one tablespoon of liquid detergent with a gallon of warm water. 

Test the solution in an inconspicuous area, wiping it on with a clean sponge or cloth, to make sure it won't damage or discolor the finish. Then rinse it off with a different sponge and clear, warm water.


For tough stains or buildup that won't come off with detergent, mix baking soda with water and lightly scrub the problem area with a cloth.
