Greasy fingerprint marks seem to appear like magic on the kitchen cabinets. Fortunately, its easy to remove them. For painted wood, metal, laminated-plastic, and wood-grain-vinyl surfaces, use a solution of dishwasher liquid and warm water. You can also use an all-purpose cleaner, but read the label carefully and test it first on the inside of a door or another inconspicuous spot to make sure it doesn’t cause colors to fade or run. Rinse with a second cloth dipped in warm water, and dry with a third cloth.
If there’s a heavy buildup of grease and grime, use a commercial cleaner designed especially for wood. Be sure to read labels carefully and observe all cautions since some cleaners are flammable. Apply a no-buff liquid-solvent polish from time to time to restore shine.
