Sticky Panty Door

So there I have a pantry door that felt 'sticky' the first time I cleaned this kitchen back in january.

I have cleaned it with Lysol wipes, Murhpy's oil, murphy's oil wipes, Vinegar and water and everytime I clean it, when it dry's it is sticky again. I have even wiped it dry after cleaning and I can feel it is sticky. Any ideas on what is happening?

It is a wood door, and the door color tone doesn't seem to change in this spot. The door is probably 5-10 years old and looks to be in good shape.

For 5 to 10 year old door, it's recommended to change its external cover. As the wooden door easily renew by using some ply or sheet and fix on the door. It is available in different design and shapes in different prices.

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.

Use soap and water to scrub your pantry. For washing cupboard, pantry, doors, floors and walls, you may try a sponge. Try to wash aged containers in soapy water. For cleaning food containers made of plastic, you can try washing them with dish soap or put them in dishwashers.

I've had good success with orange based cleaners when it comes to sticky areas (not just greasy areas). I've also heard of people using nail polish remover or tooth paste to remove sticky substances, but test an area first and ensure it won't cause damage to the frame.

Did you tried to clean it with combination of vinegar and baking soda? I usually use this combination for any persistent stain I found in my house and in the most cases it works

My best friend just had a baby, and she's my age. So I'm a godmom now, which is crazy. grin:
