That grime contains dirt, cooking oils,etc... I'm a big fan of the Citrus based spray cleaners that are on the market, they contain Citrines...(Lysol Orange Breeze,etc.)a solvent from oranges that cleans as well as Turps or mineral spirits, but gentler....(DON'T use SoftScrub or anything with bleaches or Ammonia in it)...and they smell much better....use a white Scotch brite pad backed sponge, reserving the Scotch brite side for only the toughest areas. Clean slowly and carefully because, as James points out...the finish can be deteriorated under the dirtiest areas. Rinse out the sponge often as you clean, and follow up drying immediately with flannel rags or polo type rags. If the finished result is patchy and the sheen is gone in areas....the damage may be too bad, and finish restoration/repair may be in order...best of luck
