Removing Grease from Painted Surfaces

If you are trying to clean cooking grease from a painted wall or stained or painted cabinet, here's my experience.

Mr. Clean Magic Erasers work, but they tear up easily and you need a lot of them. I tried separately vinegar with water, a quarter cup of ammonia to water to make a quart, Dawn liquid soap, and Murphy's oil soap without success.

What worked really well was a little paint thinner on a cloth or paper towel. I had to clean a large area and it did it fast.

I'm a great fan of spray foam Kitchen Cleaner or Bathroom Cleaner for those stubborn jobs. It lifts the grease and dirt that collects in it. I just spray, leave it alone to do it's work, then wipe up the runs.
