How do I get grease spots off chalk painted cabinets?


Recently painted our kitchen cabinets with chalk paint and 2 coats of poly. Now I have these spots that won’t come off. Tried magic sponge, fantastic, etc. any ideas. Also what can I do to prevent it in the future.

    Hi. The chalk paint has either plaster dust or another type of "chalky" substance, thus making the compound susceptible to absorbing liquids. Something may have gotten under the poly. So, paint again and poly again. That type of paint is not premium for areas where water and oils are used.

    Chalk paint just isn't durable enough for kitchens. You'll have to lightly sand and redo with oil based primer and paint.

    Make sure you start with a VERY clean surface! Use a good primer first, then paint and seal. Like painting anything...if there is something that might bleed will!

    For a quick fix, try dusting it with dusting powder or flour, baking soda or cornstarch if walls are light color.
