TSP substitute is fairly mild, I limit it's uses to just door jambs and the like. I have always had good luck with real TSP mixed w/hot water + gloves. At home when I am doing general cleaning I use amonia even though it stanks it cuts grease big time (comes in Janitorial strength also). The nice thing about TSP is that it deglosses the surface.

As of late I have been actually sanding everything first and then cleaning that way all the dust gets rinsed off as well. This would not be a good idea in your case though where it is so bad it scrapes off.Eww. Pressure wash em maybe.NOT

Hey guys, thanks for all the ideas. I put some of them to use and I found a winner. The winner was paint thinner. It cut the grime faster than anything else, but unfortunately I for one can't stand working with the stuff. If it was just a few doors and drawers then yeah I could deal with it, but for a whole kitchen full, just not for me. I also tried simple tried SG, KK and good o'l TSP. Out of those the TSP mixed with hot water did the trick. I only had to do the cleaning process 2x as opposed to 3x with the TSP substitute, SG and KK. Still not a walk in the park, but it still saved me some time. After cleaning, I set them in my booth with the heater cranked up to dry out over nightm then sanded, primed with BIN and top coated with PPG breakthrough paint and then clear gloss. I wish I would have taken a before and after of this as the transformation was nothing short of amazing. I hope the HO likes it, I'm taking them back and installing tomorrow.
