My vent hood was built with wood over it, above the hood, is
a cabinet. The wood vent hood and the cabinet are covered
with old grease from years. We tried to clean it with
"orange" cleaning stuff and also with 409 spray thing but
doesn't work. It's very sticky.
Is there an stronger solution so we can get the grease out.
Your suggestion is very much appreciated.
Old grease over a clear finish seems, eventually, to soften the finish.
With that in mind, mineral spirits is a good solvent and relatively
safe (flammable, though). I've used it to remove greasy residue, but
the finish may come off with the grease.
Fantastic is stronger than 409, but again the finish may come off with
the grease. Fantastic with a 3m scrubber works very well.
Fine steel wool might do the trick but will gum up easily.
