The elbow grease begins...
The cabinets in the rental unit are not particularily pretty, but they are in decent shape and do the job. However, they are covered in a greasy goo from years of use. The previous owner didn't put drawer pulls on the cabinets (or ever cleaned anything, ever) so the corners and tops are grungy and sticky. Yesterday, while waiting on some prospective tenants to stop by, we used a combo of Goo Gone, Fantastic, and arm muscle to start scrubbing away the years of gunk. It's not fun, but it works. Check out these - The left's been scrubbed, the right is still grungy.
Better right? A little? Regardless, they DO look better in person and I feel better about renting it now. Today, I bought some wood conditioner that I'll apply when we are totally done, just to give them a little love.
