How to clean greasy kitchen cabinets?

Jessica: I like to wipe my cabinets down with a mixture of ½ water and ½ vinegar. I simply spray a damp cloth with the vinegar mixture and wipe down all of my cabinets. If your cabinets have a thicker coat of greasy buildup on them, you can use some Castile soap or Murphy's Oil soap and warm water to wipe them down!

Are there any tips for cleaning brass? Can you use the same stuff as for copper?
