Is it near a stove area? Do you think it could be excess grease build up? Or could someone be working with a special-something that is making their hands and door grubby in turn? I have had some success with built-up grease situations with Krud Kutter and DeSolv-It (like at the tippy top of the cabinets and you find your cleaning cloth drags when you use your regular cleaner). I believe the labels claim these to be safe on wood surfaces. Always test in a small area first, of course, and use a microfiber cloth (just more effective). If you, or the homeowner, are not doing regular maintenance cleanings (weekly/biweekly), this will probably continue to happen.
