Removing White Tack Stains on Matte Painted Wallpaper

I put up banners in my daughters house for new baby/welcome home. They were stuck up with white tack. My daughter has just taken the banners down after two weeks of being up, and there are greasy marks left all over the walls, 8 banners worth of greasy marks. Her wallpaper is painted with matte paint so not washable. Can I use baking soda to try to remove the stains? Your help would be very much appreciated.

An artgum eraser rubbed gently across the stain would be a better solution.

Several years ago we had a similar problem and, although it was not easy to do, my son used brown paper bags and a low/medium heat from a hair dryer to absorb the greasy residue.
He had to use a ladder as he could not hold the hair dryer in a high position for a long period of time but it did a fair job (at least the spots did not stand out when you walked into the room).
