I used a product called Totally Awesome. It is carried in The Dollar Tree and Dollar General. It is yellow in color. This stuff is amazing. I haven't found anything that this product doesnt clean Make sure it is Totally Awesome and not any other. It comes in a handy spray bottle and is also sold by the gallon. I even used this to remove old varnish on a piece of furniture. It is a great cleaner. Hope this helps.

The only problem was totally awesome which I used for many things is that it takes to paint right off the walls I had a grease fire last night my kitchen is completely soot and I live in an old Victorian house the ceilings are I think 14 feet tall and very ornately decorative with stainded glass windows any other thoughts I don't want to repaint

Try magic eraser! It was the only thing that worked for me. But I also used it on the wood, smooth mantle. So I'm not sure for walls or ceilings.

I used a combination of white vinegar, ammonia, & "Awesome" (from the dollar store). In a gallon of very warm water, I added equal parts of vinegar & ammonia (about 3/4's of a cup), and about a 1/3 of the "Awesome".

As I cleaned, I rinsed my scrubby & rag in a separate bucket (which I dumped frequently)- if you don't the cleaning mixture turns black-fast! Rinse with cool water.

This mixture will also help as a pre-soak for damaged clothing & linens.

I tries Totally Awesome did not work for me. It is a great product and I use it for a lot of things but it did not take the soot off. I also tried Dawn that did not work either. Still looking for something that will take the soot off my walls and ceiling .

After reading and trying most methods I finally found my own answer; "Sprayway" glass cleaner. Yes you still need to use a little elbow grease but it cleans great and a bonus .... it doesn't smell like all the other's.
