How to clean tung oil-finished cabinets
Several years ago I stripped the dark stain from old kitchen cbinets to reveal this gorgeous oak beneath. I put several coats of miniwax tung oil as a finish.
I believe it's supposed to be non-yellowing; anyway, since it's a kitchen, you get the usual grease, smoke, soot residue on the cabinets.
I'd like to clean them, but I don't know how. Any suggestions for what to use to get the grease and other gunk off? (Btw, the residue on them is NOT at all heavy, but it's there.)
What can I use to clean the cabinets? Should I use 0000 steel wool with a cleaning solution? I just do not want to STRIP the tung oil off (mineral spirits were suggested to me, but like I said, I just want to clean them, not strip them!)
I wouldn't mind adding a few more coats of tung oil to them, although I'd like to avoid it right now if possible (I really just want to clean them!)
Any ideas? Thanks for your help.
