cleaning painted cabinets

jaybirdFebruary 6, 2009

I have old plywood cabinets that are painted with oil based paint. What is the best cleaner to use on them?

Many thanks in advance for your help.

Thanks Linda, that is what I have been using, but since there is a vast knowlege of things I have never heard of on this board, I thought I would ask! Everyone here is way too smart for me...I just come stumbling along and ask questions :^) Makes my life easier!
