    If TSP doesn't work for me then I use Super Clean, it is a cleaner/ degreaser. I buy it in Walmart in the automotive dept. It comes in a purple gallon jug for about $17.00. way cheaper than pre mixed spray bottle. I think the ratio is like 1 part to 16 parts water. It also comes in a spray bottle pre mixed .I make up a spray bottle and if its a really greasy or dirty area I pour some straight on a rag and just wipe it on then leave it for a few minutes then wipe it off. I used this after being frustrated trying to clean dirty grout on a backsplash that had not been cleaned for 30 yrs. and it cleaned up really well. I found this great cleaner years ago when my husband used it to clean the engine of our cars. I think the only thing you cant clean with it is plastic. Good Luck

    I find that 409 cuts dirt and grime so quickly. Murphy's Soap cuts grease too on wood!

    The old fashioned way, baking soda and vinegar, then scrub off with a scrubby sponge. The grease comes off like grey play doh.

    Twenty Mule Team Borax, water and a little dish detergent. After they are dry, rub them with dryer sheets. It helps repel dust.

    If you plan on repainting, try any engine degreaser. There is a really good product at our local Hardware store called, Holy Cow. Their degreaser is awesome & easy to use.

    Simple green diluted with water - the concentrated kind, not the pre-mixed bottle. Be sure you rinse well afterward.

    You'll think it sounds crazy... but baby wipes. They clean baseboards beautifully with no mess and little effort. They're all I use to clean my painted woodwork.
  • Cindy Cindy on Apr 10, 2016
    Moisten a fabric softener sheet and wipe them. May need to scrub a little. Sounds crazy, I know, but that's how I cleaned the greasy stove hood in house we bought.
  • Rebecca Hewitt-Walraven Rebecca Hewitt-Walraven on Apr 10, 2016
    Murphy Soap should clean up the baseboards.

    Try the Clorox wipes....wrap them around a sponge so you have a more solid grip. My daughter taught me that one and works great on grease.

    I know you've all thought of this but I always cut Magic Erasers in half or thirds so one isn't used up before it should be.

      @Dawg1953.ds Even more amazing--if you're careful, you can just TEAR them in half! It really does make them go farther. Thanks, Dawg!

    Brush the baseboards with a paintbrush, not the foam kind. This will dislodge loose dirt. Then follow up with one of the methods mentioned above.
