Methods for removing gunky stuff?
I just opened the kitched pantry and, gasp!, found that a can of Ocean Spray cranberry slices had leaked down the back of the painted cabinet wall. The stuff is dry and stuck on in some areas and just gooey in others. What do I use to get the dried gunk off? I don't want to ruin the paint job! Thanks! I tried Robin's method and I heated up a wet towel in the microwave. It worked wonders! I didn't even need soap. Thanks!
