Cheapest and most efficient for me (especially for expanses of surfaces like cabinets or concrete floors) has always been granular TSP, dissolved in warm water and washed with a rag. You can find TSP in a paint, hardware or home store. One does need to go over the surfaces with a clear water rinsed rag, to rinse any TSP residue off, in most cases.
It is drying to skin, so if you are sensitive, wear vinyl gloves when using it.
