Amy's got a kitchen cleaning dilemma:

I recently moved into a new apartment with some funky, gunky grime on the (wood) kitchen cabinets and the metal knobs. I tried soapy water, scrubby sponge, and elbow grease but that didn't work. Is there a tough grease and grime cutting kitchen cleanser that's also green? I looked at the method line and I didn't see anything strong enough that would help in this situation.

Well, we've seen very few nasty clean-up situations that vinegar and baking soda can't handle. That being said, we're not sure exactly what kind of gunky grime you're dealing with there. (Heck, baking soda even works as a paint remover.)

What's the toughest, greenest kitchen cleanser out there? Any help?
