Removing grease stains from your walls is a pretty strenuous task. There are different methods you can find online, but the key is to find the right cleaning product. This will depend on the type of wall covering.
For painted walls, you can use a mixture of vinegar and water. Use 1:1 solution of warm water and vinegar. If the grease stains are really stubborn, you might need to use a slightly stronger solution. Rub the wall, but be careful not to rub the paint off. When all the grease is removed, dry the wall. Don’t let it air dry, because it may leave a grease ring. This solution works well for cooking grease.
Another popular solution for painted walls is to make a paste of baking soda and water. Apply the paste to the wall and let it dry completely. Then, brush the powder off and the grease goes with it. To remove old grease stains, you may need to do this several times.
To remove grease stains from wallpaper, first make sure that your wallpaper is washable. Then, make a paste of baking soda and water, or cornstarch and water. Apply it to the grease stains and let it sit there, until it dries. Use a soft cloth or a brush to brush away the powder. You might need to repeat the process a few times.
A solution of vinegar and water might also work for wallpaper with heavy, shiny surface. It your wallpaper has matte finish, the solution might soak through the paper and lift it from the wall, so it’s not a good idea to try this option.
