Grease stains tend to go unnoticed, and this allows them to accumulate in unimaginable quantities. This dirt can damage your wood kitchen cabinets if left on the furniture for long periods. But as unpleasant are those grease stains are, as easily is to remove them. First, try a gentler approach and, if necessary, switch to a more aggressive solution to find the best formula for the situation.
Grease stains are nasty and hard to clean. Try these delicate methods and, if necessary, move on to more aggressive solutions.
Mix two tablespoons of dishwashing detergent with two cups of hot water and wipe kitchen cabinets with a clean cloth. Rinse the cloth and dry with a clean towel.
Sprinkle baking soda on a damp cloth and clean kitchen cabinets. Rinse the cloth and dry with a clean towel. Baking soda does not scratch!
Add a cup of white vinegar and soap flakes. Leave the soap to dissolve and with half a cup of solution mixed with half a cup of water wash the dirty place. White vinegar is a wonderful degreaser.
If you need a more aggressive approach, add a half cup of borax (you can find in pharmacies, a few tablespoons of dishwashing detergent and a cup of vinegar and mix it with a cup of water. Leave the solution to clear up and use it to clean the place. You need to rinse. You also may need to add more warm water to dissolve the borax.
Finally wipe the kitchen cabinet with a small amount of orange oil, lemon oil or mineral oil. The luster will make the difference.
To give a proper luster to wooden or pale furniture, use a piece of cotton on which you have dripped a few drops of olive oil and a little cigarette ash. Remove furniture thoroughly and you will see that it will have a beautiful gloss and the colors will also be more vivid.
