Cleaning The Grease and Grime
During my last move, I was trying desperately to wash off the stuck on grease and grime on my kitchen cabinets, especially above the stove. There are lots of cleaning products out there, but what I’ve found works best is Dawn dish soap and isopropyl alcohol.
- First, put on gloves and get an old rag that you don’t mind discarding when this project is complete.
- Second, soak the corner of the rag with isopropyl alcohol and begin scrubbing the cabinet, including handles. Be careful not to scrub the paint off; however, a fresh coat of paint on a cabinet for a touch up after cleaning is not a bad idea.
- Third, after getting most of the grease and grime off, get a scrubbing sponge and saturate with Dawn dish soap and finish cleaning the cabinet. Dry thoroughly when done.
Yes, elbow grease is required, but I’ve seen this work wonders!
