Removing Grease from Kitchen Cabinets

Q: I have been trying to help my mother-in-law clean her house. It has not been cleaned in several years. The problem is she has grease all over her cabinets oil soap did nothing, orange glo nothing, have tried several products but nothing has worked the grease remains. The cabinets are in like new condition but I have never seen so much grease, I have convinced her to replace her range hood and I have cleaned her oven. I am trying not to kill the finish (if there is any left) any suggestions?

Tip #1: I hate to admit it but the Mr. Clean magic erasers work wonders!! Best $1.88 I have ever spent. Can find them at Wally World.

Tip #2: I know it is not meant for wood but what about Dawn dish soap. It works great for taking grease off dishes you could test it on the cabinets...and some elbow grease with it.

Tip #3: Scrubbing bubbles work great. Spray on and let set. Wash with warm water. If it is really bad you may have to do this 2x...Susan
