A blogger on the interwebs recommended a TSP type cleaner (I got phosphate free) and Zinnser primer. I got both. I used rubber gloves and a sponge to wash down the cupboard and drawer fronts, and the empty supports inside the pop uptact paper on metal. (a mix of laminate on particle board, laminate on plywood, and contact paper on metal.. The can of primer just barely made it but I managed to spray all the cupboards and drawers on Saturday, and left them overnight to dry.
