Cleaning and maintaining wooden kitchen cabinets is always an important thing in kitchen. Trying to clean these grease stains with a dry or wet paper towel is usually turns out to be an utter waste of time and energy. Most commercial cleaners, too fail to remove the grease, especially when it combines with dirt. Moreover, ammonia-based cleaners are not even considered safe.

Especially near the handles where grimy hands were touching them over and over. It was time to mix up a batch of this stuff and give it a go!

Apply the mixture to your cabinets with a cloth or sponge, or as I like to do, use your hands. I think it’s easier to work it into all the nooks and crannies this way.

For the grooves that are harder to reach with my fingers, I like to use an old toothbrush.

Another easy way to get rid of kitchen oil stains involves the use of a paste of baking soda and hydrogen peroxide as a degreaser. It is particularly good for cleaning the range hood.

In addition, you can use astringents such as witch hazel to remove grease stains from wooden cabinets, especially around the knobs. You can try a combination of lemon juice and club soda, too.

Additional Tips

  • Clean the range hood regularly, at least every two weeks to avoid the buildup of greasy residue and dirt. Ideally, the range hood vent filter needs to be cleaned once a month. Some filters can be cleaned in the dishwasher.
  • While cooking, prefer to cover the cooking utensils such as frying pans with lids or splatter guards.
  • Do not touch your kitchen cabinets with greasy fingers.
