Removing Cleaning Products from Cabinet Fronts
I was helping my aunt clean her kitchen cabinets. I have been a fan of Murphy's wood soap oil, but I think her cabinets were too dirty for this to work.

And I think my aunt wants them to shine afterwards. Considering they are 30+ years old, is it realistic anything will make them look shiny?
