The cupboard had lots of oil, but I used "strong oven cleaner" to clean it. Now it has become black.

I guess the surface has been damaged. How can I fix it?

You sprayed oven cleaner on your cabinets? – DMoore Jun 18 '14 at 19:27
Strip down to wood and refinish. You've just got to finish what you've started. Don't use oven cleaner as the stripping agent. – Fiasco Labs Jun 19 '14 at 4:17
