your questions in Remodel It
Remove Greasy Smoke Stains from Wood Cabinets
I don't think that TSP will remove wood finish, but I'd test it to be sure. Remove a door or cabinet drawer, mix up a weak solution of TSP and warm water, and see how well it works. Just dont let the wood get excessively wet or it may warp.
If you've not tried it yet, Murphy's Oil Soap is also an option. It's very well regarded as a furniture cleaner and highly rated on Amazon.
Bathroom Remodel | Smaller Bedroom vs. Larger Bath
That's a great question. Home buyers appreciate both, and I suspect it will come down to personal preferences. I don't like the idea of cutting into an otherwise roomy master bedroom, and would fully evaluate what changes might be made to remodel the bath without taking away from the master bedroom.
How important is that bathroom closet? Instead of pushing it to the master, you might consider simply adding an armoire to that space for additional storage. Also, you should consider working with a CKBD, a Certified Kitchen & Bath Designer, who may have other ideas on how to make the most of the space you have.
Can I Move My Washer and Dryer to My Garage?
There are a few very real deterrents to moving your washer and dryer to your garage: First, I don't know what climate you live in, but yes - without additional heating - you risk water lines freezing in an unheated space.
Since heating a garage quickly becomes expensive, even once it's insulated, you might find yourself spending far more money than you ever anticipated on clean clothes and convenience! But there's something else in your question that concerns me: Your mention of dehumidifying your basement by removing the washer and dryer. This is an unwise motive. If your dryer is properly vented, it shouldn't be contributing to basement moisture.
If I were in your shoes, I'd concentrate on dehumidifying the basement by taking steps independent of the washer and dryer. And if you really need to make the washer and dryer more accessible, consider a stacked unit - a dryer on top of a washer - that is more likely to fit in your closet or your kitchen. There's a quality one from Santa Fe, and if that's too big, there are smaller appliances and models designed for apartments and compact homes. Good luck!
