What products is there for removing grease and grime from oak cabinets without removing the poly finish?
What I have always used is TSP<[tri sodiam Phosphate[sp?) desolved in very hot water. I do not remember the portions of the TSP to water, but the hardwear store where you get the TSP should be able to tell you.
If you think that the TSP will rmove the finish,then look for some kind of detergente that will desolve the greasewithout harming the finish.
Speak to the folks at a paint store or a hardware store and see what they have to say or suggest.
If that does not work or give you the answer that you need, Surch the enternet for a board that can give you an answer. There are several sites that could help you.
HTH, and let us know what happens.
Have you tried some Murphy's oil soap or even just Dawn. I've used a product called Rejuvenate which did just that to my cabinets.
Haven't used it myself but have heard rave reviews from others who have used "Rejuvenate" (sp? as Jo-CT suggested. Think you can buy it at stores like Home Depot and Lowes. Good Luck!
Orange Clean or Orange Glow works for me. Always read labels and test an area first (inside a door works), clean and allow it to dry to check for any unwanted changes before continuing.
I personally like TSP, but feel it is a bit too harsh for general wood cleaning, unless one is going to paint the surface after.
I always use the Orange Glow that Conrad mentioned. It works wonders even on grease/grimy cabinets!! I have done several sets back when we used to rent...nothing worse than someone else's grease!
