refinish kitchen cabinets

15 years ago

I want to refinish 25 year old high quality, custom cabinets. Don't know type of wood but stain appears to be walnut. I have cleaned the cabinets with manufacturer recommended spic and span but shiny,smooth, grease area remains around pull knobs, probably from hand oils. Also 2 cabinets have scratched areas around knobs down to bare wood. I've done furniture refinishing and done the complete job of stripping, sanding, staining and sealing but I don't want to change the cabinet color and am afraid if I strip I might not get an even stain color match with the cabinet boxes. For grease area what can I degrease with and can I then just sand and seal? Has anyone used Restorz-It internet product? Any other suggestions?
