Default prep steps to re-clearcoat cabinets...

what are your steps to refinishing kitchen cabinetry? I have used krudd cutter and had fisheye problems with poly in the past, I am wondering if anyone has some foolproof procedures to remove dirt and grease and leave old cabinetry in a solid state to reshoot.

We will clean them up with tsp. then clean with denatured alcohol after. Sand 400 grit. Wipe down with alcohol again. Never had a problem.

Is that real tsp or the Jasco no-rinse tsp substitute or other? I know real tsp takes a lot of rinsing.
Kitchen cabs take a lot of cleaning!

Only problem with fisheye eliminator is that every coating thereafter needs it as well.

It's real tsp. lots of rags and a bucket of clean water beside each guy. Then a quick wipe with alcohol helps evaporate the water. Always works. I rarely get fish eye problems. I used Kurd cutter which also works well and gloss off witch I don't like. That stuff totally softens the existing coating. You can't sand it for a while.
In general water Bourne coatings don't have as many fish eye problems as solvent IMO.

I've used Krud Kutter "Gloss-Off" and had no problems with refinishing clear cabinets w/waterborne conversion varnish or painted cabinets.

First thing I do with any cabinet refinish/repaint is to clean, clean and clean before sanding.

Yeah I agree tons of cleaning before sanding. I use the gloss off after our sanding, to both remove any final dust and improve adhesion, so I'm not trying to sand after it.
