All-purpose kitchen cleaner
-Try trisodium phosphate (TSP). It is available at paint and hardware stores, and it is a fantastic cleaning agent. Follow directions very carefully. If the mixture is too strong, it can remove paint.

TSP is one of the greatest cleaners out there. When I was a teenager, I cleaned my grandmother's walls/ceilings with TSP. Imagine my suprise when I discovered that what I thought was beige paint was actually white paint with several years of "smoke damage". One or two swipes of the TSP solution and it came right off -- NO scrubbing!

However, do not be suprised if you can't find it in your area. EPA regulations have changed over the years and it is difficult to find things with "phospates" included. You might need a license to purchase TSP even if it is available in your area.
