    Krud Kutter works extremely well on everything. My husband gets motor oil on almost everything. Spray it on clothing a let it soak in for about five minutes, rub it in and wash in the machine. Takes most if not all out of the oil out. Works on greasy

    I have used The Victorian House Finish Rejuvenator for over 25 years for cleaning the greasy buildup on cabinets, antiques, floors, doors and all the wood in my home and told everyone I know about the product. It was only available in antique stores
