I have used several cleaners to clean my walls in the office, which still had wallpaper paste drips staining the painted surface below the paper border. It's easy to spot the drips when the light hits the walls surface. Regular cleaners that run down the surface make a mess. And since the cleaner hasn't had time to do its job, I've got to use a lot more elbow grease to get it clean.
The secret I have discovered for upright surfaces. Cleaning is easier with a foaming tub and tile cleaner like Dow Foaming Bubbles. It adheres to the surface giving the cleaner time to break down the grease or dirt. I also use it to clean under the hood of the stove, refrigerator walls, oven door, ice chest, etc. try it and you'll do a lot less scrubbing.

I used Scrubbing Bubbles to clean the nicotine off the walls in my house when I bought it. Another trick to washing walls is to start from the bottom and work your way up. That way when water runs down the wall it won't leave a visible track later.
I almost didn't comment on this but in all good conscience I have to :-(
Yes, the foaming bathroom cleaners work wonderfully! I started using them about 1974 religiously for all the items you mention thinking, "Wow, this sure makes cleaning a snap!". Well, along with the harsh chemicals in these and other cleansers such as windex, bleach and many other chemical products such as pesticides, insect repellents, etc, etc, (which all accumulate in your body whether via skin or lungs) I was recently diagnosed with Stage 2 Emphysema at the age of 55 :-(
I just want to caution that you should never use harsh chemicals at all if possible and, please, do not use them in rooms where you can't open windows and doors and please also wear a mask when you do.
I am so sorry to rain on your parade but I don't want to see others possibly get lung disease when there are so many safe and natural items out there like vinegar, baking soda, lemon juice, washing soda, liquid soap, etc that will do the same job with a little extra elbow grease.
