Wax deposits were removed from the wall, but grease soaked into the wall surface and left small marks. Which now I don't accept emulsioning over. How can I remove the residue?

Go to any paint or hardware store and ask for a product with TSP in it. This will remove grease and other dirt from the walls

Depending on your wall, what I would try is wiping the area down with acetone (nail polish remover) or paint thinner, something that will cut the grease. Or you can also purchase specific products, like those suggested here by others.

Some people even think that a simple dishsoap/water solution will work, as will a 1/2 vinegar to 2/3 water solution will as well.

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.
