    Clean well with TSP, remove doors and hardware (label with tape so you know what goes where ), sand them down and wipe them down to remove the dust . You should be ready to restain . Don't forget to apply polyurethane as a sealant afterwards .

    I agree with all but the polyurethane. If you use a paint especially formulated for kitchen cabinets like Sherwin Williams has no need for any thing else on top of the paint

    I would definitely do it carefully, by hand.
