Default Good cleaner for painting cabinets.

I'm looking for a good cleaner other than lacquer thinner that I can use for painting BM Advance over cabinets painted with oil. I'm trying to get completely away from strong odors and dangerous chemical cleaners and this is one of the last things I use. I still do a sand over everything but I need to be able to get through the oils and residue left from years of cooking and handling.

I like to use a strong mixture of the Jasco TSP substitute. It's green in color. Dose a really good job cutting through grease and also de glosses. Then I follow up with a quick denatured alcohol wipe.

I use Simple Green after any other solvents then a quick rinse. Last time it was simple green and sanding only, I got lucky.

I just use Krud Kutter. But afterwards I wipe surfaces well with a towel dampened with clean water to remove most residue.
