How do I get grease off of the wall?
By Dana from Lacombe, LA
A quality citris cleaner should work well. Make sure its not a watered down version. Home improvement centers with have it. Use it with a soft mildly abrasive cloth or sponge. Apply to area let sit 10-15 mins and wipe. Repeated applications may be needed.
If its been there too long you may take the paint off and that would have to be repaired. Mr. Clean pads don't work well I tried that already myself.

Use a strong solution of ammonia water. Works every time! :)
Mr. Clean Magic Erasers, safe on painted walls, they are amazing! (Just don't use on wood or laminate.)

I need advice about how to clean grease splatters on glossy paint around stove?
Kay from Kalamazoo, MI
Using white vinegar, washing soda, or Borax cleaner are all good grease removers. I mixed washing soda with Borax and boiled it on stove top to thoroughly dissolve it. I made a small portion for a small job, ie.: 1/8 cup washing soda, and 1 /4 cup Borax. Added about 2 quarts water. You can adjust portions as that was more than I needed. A little goes a long way. Vinegar and water are excellent.
Then there is the recipe for overnight cleaning a grungy oven. Sprinkle generously with baking soda (Cooking kind) and wetting to make it wet/damp. Leave on overnight and simply use soap and water to wash out the oven the next morning. I had to try it to believe it. (called the lazy way to clean oven.) It really does work. The point is this: all above ways will remove kitchen grease. (06/28/2008)
How to get grease off of walls? The people who lived in our apartment before us didn't clean very well before they moved. There are grease splatters on the wall behind the stove, between the top of the stove and the hood. I have tried everything to get those dried up splatter spots off of the wall and nothing budges them. How can I get at least 3 year old grease splatters off of a painted wall?

After I cleaned it good with a grease removing product and maybe using TSP to clean the wall, I"d paint it with a good primer and repaint it. I think the kind of stain you're talking about needs to be repainted. (03/29/2009)
