    Does anyone here have the Merilat Kitchen cabinets? If so, how do you get them clean? I have grease and dirt on them, and they need a better cleaning agent. I have tried Murphy;s Oil Soap, Dishsoap, Wood cleaner, etc. Anyone have any other ideas? Would appreciate them. Thanks.

    I started sanding down all the peeling rough edges on the drawers and doors, so now we are almost ready to paint these suckers :D We are wondering what type of paint we should use? It's a veneer particle board we'll be painting over. Anything we need to do for prep work before it's painted on...
