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.

I just recently had to do this. I used dish detergent, hot water and a cup of white vinegar. It took a while but they finally came clean. Also Mr Clean sponges seem to work on everything. It wouldn't hurt to try! (08/29/2008)

Pour 1/4 cup ammonia in a 1-quart spray bottle. Fill the rest with water. Spray and wipe. You will be amazed! (08/31/2008)

It's a very crazy idea, but I use these baby wipes. They work good and don't harm the hands!

Two thoughts here- either should work; GOO Gone OR WD-40. Yep it's got fish oil in it and it seems to take grease off everything... even white shirts! (09/02/2008)

Since grease and ammonia combine to make soap, I think that you should give the ammonia a try. If the fumes will work to clean ovens, they should work on this. (09/02/2008)

Murphy's oil soap. I used this on a dresser that came from a heavy smoker's home and it got the sticky residue out. (09/04/2008)
