Keeping the Kitchen Cabinets clean - What's your secret sauce ?

Somewhat OT, but countless hours obsessing detail after detail, backsplash, countertop, which knobs, etc - the kitchen is completed.

My only issue with the entire thing is the hood. Part of the issue is the *hood design* but also part of it is just due to layout, the duct is part of the issue. It does exhaust air and all - just a tad noiser than where it should be...

HOWEVER, I am curious. How do you guys deal with CLEANING.

I'm OKAY across the board on everything EXCEPT for the 2 side cabinets adjacent to the hood. For whatever reason, I am getting some slight buildup of grease on my Natural Sheen Cherry Cabs. I don't want to RUB to hard or just something that will make the natural sheen more *glossy* than it is. I run the hood 7 minutes before cooking and 10-15 minutes afterwards...

Anybody care to share what's a good product to use to cut the grease.
I tried Ivory. No dice.
I HATE Murphys Oil Soap (it's not really a good product at all) BUT, on a test spot, if I use it straight with a paper towel, it does indeed remove the grease down to clean wood.
