    First I would take the knobs off and then clean the outside with a little bit of dish detergent and vinegar in warm water. Make sure u get all grease and grime off them. After they have dried I would lightly sand them and wipe them down after sanding. I would then take the doors off ( you could take the doors off before u clean but it might be easier to clean them while their up on the boxes) and then take them outside to spray. A hand sprayer would make the end result look nicer than doing it all with a brush. But since I assume that u are living in the house u will probably have to brush the boxes . Wait at least 3 or 4 hrs before u put the doors back on and longer if u can. Make sure they don't feel tacky! Hope that helps!

    Make sure they are clean and dry. Use acrylic latex paint. Remove the doors and hardware. Mark the doors and cabinets with tape where they go. Lightly sand the doors and cabinets to remove any gloss and roughen the surface for paint. Prime with a stain blocking primer like Zinsser 123. Then paint with your color. Seal with at least three coats with a water based polyurethane. Use a small foam roller and foam brush for a smooth finish.

    there's a product specifically FOR cleaning grease and grime - forget the 3 letter name... like TLC or TRL... but here's an organic way...
    To cut through grease on kitchen cabinets without harsh cleaners:
    Heat a damp sponge in the microwave for 30 to 40 seconds.
    Spray the cabinet with a citrus based cleaner.
    Wearing dishwashing gloves to avoid burning your hands, take the hot sponge out of the microwave, and use it to remove the grease.
