According to SFGate, ways to remove grease from kitchen cabinets include scrubbing them with soap and water or wiping them down with white vinegar. A mixture of baking soda and vegetable oil can also help remove grease from cabinets.

Scrubbing cabinets with hot water and dish soap can help remove grease. Fill a bucket with very hot water and 2 tablespoons of dishwashing soap. Take a clean sponge and dip it in the water. Wipe down the greasy cabinets. Scrub the cabinets with a nylon scouring pad to help loosen the grease. Wipe the cabinets down with more soap and water. Continue washing and scrubbing the cabinets until the grease is gone.

Applying undiluted white vinegar to kitchen cabinets is another way to dissolve and remove grease. Soak a clean rag in white vinegar. Wring out the soaked rag and wipe down the cabinets. Rinse out the rag with warm water and wipe the cabinets. Dip the rag in vinegar, wring it out and wipe down the cabinets once more. Continue wiping down the cabinets with water and vinegar until the grease is gone.

A mixture of baking soda and vegetable oil can create an effective cabinet degreaser. Make a paste out of one part vegetable oil and two parts baking soda. Apply the paste to kitchen cabinets. Gently scrub the cabinets with a cloth until the cabinets are clean.

After cleaning the cabinets, always rinse and dry them. Wipe the cabinets down with warm water and dry them with a soft cloth to prevent warping or discoloration.
