Cleaning Grease Buildup Off Kitchen Cabinets

  • Transcript

    LESLIE: Now we’ve got Joann in Illinois who’s working on a kitchen-cleaning project. Tell us what you’re working on.

    JOANN: I have lovely, Quaker-made kitchen cabinets. They’ve been in, oh my, I suppose 35 years. They’re really good shape but the only thing I’d like to ask you is – you know, where you go to pull the – to open them? It seems like there gets to be, oh, accumulation of grease, oil or whatever. And I’d like to know: what is the best thing to use to wash them down?

    LESLIE: Have you tried an orange-based cleaner, like an Orange Glo?

    JOANN: That is – would be just a straight cleaner? It’s nothing you mix with water or anything.

    LESLIE: Nope. It’s just a straight cleaner. And I find that it’s really good at degreasing and desticking a lot of buildup. When we took the protective bumpers off of our very pointy wood coffee table when Henry got a little bigger, the sticky stuff just left the worst residue across my amazing apothecary table.

    And nothing I could use was getting off this residue and Orange Glo really did the trick. I was very surprised at how quickly it just melted the tape extract and all of that adhesive. And I use it on my kitchen cabinets. I use it pretty much on all my wood surfaces and I find it really does a good job.

    JOANN: OK. I really enjoy your program.

    TOM: Thank you so much, Joann. Good luck with that project and thank you for calling us at 888-MONEY-PIT.
