  1. The Sponge and Warm Soapy Water Trick

This one is a tutorial made by Ann Myrick from eHow. All you be needing is in the title and a few energies to wipe off the grease stains. One reminder note from her is to avoid creating thick soapy film and just combine 3 tablespoons of soap and just enough warm water. Also, for the crevices, you could use an old used toothbrush to brush off the ingrained dirt. Then wipe off-dry.

  1. Spray it With Undiluted Vinegar

Just pour undiluted vinegar into a spray bottle and mist your cabinet with the solution.  Avoid spraying too much as it can cause rusting metal or peeling which could damage the look of your cabinet. Let it sit for 10 minutes then wipe off in circular motion. For stubborn grease stains, use a gentle sponge and lightly scrub it. Finally, wipe it off-dry with a lint-free cloth. Repeat as necessary.
