If you are trying to clean cooking grease from a painted wall or stained or painted cabinet, here's my experience.
Mr. Clean Magic Erasers work, but they tear up easily and you need a lot of them. I tried separately vinegar with water, a quarter cup of ammonia to water to make a quart, Dawn liquid soap, and Murphy's oil soap without success.
What worked really well was a little paint thinner on a cloth or paper towel. I had to clean a large area and it did it fast.

What would be the best way to clean cooking grease off of painted wooden kitchen cabinets without damaging the paint? Thanks.
