How to Degrease Kitchen Cabinets

Grease sticks to kitchen cabinets from airborne particles released by cooking and from spills. Built-up grease stinks and gives a slimy feel to the cabinet. Use vinegar and baking soda to remove the grease. The vinegar and baking soda also absorb the odor from the grease. Clean cabinets at least once a month, more frequently if they are white. Grease ranges in color from off-white to brown. Grease comes mainly from cooking meat, but also results from the cooking of butter, oil and other fatty foods.
