How do I clean unfinished wood?

I'm wondering how to go about cleaning my old kitchen cabinets before refinishing them. They don't appear to have anything more than a worn oil finish and I don't want to damage the wood with anything too strong. Thanks for any suggestions.

Unless you intend to strip them to apply new stain and finish, simply washing them thoroughly with spic and span will remove the grease, grit, and grime. If the finish is worn through to the bare wood, then stripping will be the appropriate course of action prior to a new finish.
