Removing Grease from Painted Kitchen Walls

Tip #1: Try using K2R spot remover. I am a property manager and have used it on wallpaper and it removed 90% of the grease marks. They are barely noticeable now.

Tip #2: Dollar General sells a cleaner called Mean Green I have used it to get grease off of everything. Paint, clothes (as there is a mechanic in the House) woodwork, floors, etc. I haven't had it remove paint yet. This is the best cleaner I have ever found. And it is cheap $2.50 for a good sized bottle!

Tip #3: When I was removing the wallpaper border in my kitchen, I used a solution of 1/2 vinegar and 1/2 water. A friend recommended I use warm water for better results and I was amazed to find it removed the grease as well as the paper!

Tip #4: The tip I am commenting about is the "Vinegar and Water" solution for cleaning off grease splatter on walls. This tip worked wonderfully! I can hardly tell the grease marks are still there; the look is now MUCH cleaner! Thanks alot!...Crystal

Tip #5:: Vinegar + Water. Two thumbs up for this suggestion. It cleaned muck of the stains from my wall with only minimal effort. Important: After cleaning with vinegar + water, rub with *dry* towel...Aravind

Tip #6: I've used a strong vinegar water solution but recently I discovered Dawn Power Dissolver, for dishes. It cleans everything! Just spray on, let it set for a minute and it comes right off. I use it to clean my range hood where that dust and grease mixture is impossible to remove, works like a charm. I use it to clean my stove top too...Angela

Tip #7: "Greased Lightening" is excellent for removing grease from the stove or what may have splattered onto cabinets or countertops. Greased Lightening can be purchased from nearly every grocery store, or at least from Walmart or target, or similar stores...Sarah

Tip #8: Although I'm mostly using vinegar to clean with these days I still resort to Dow Scrubbing Bubbles for tough, old grease. It works great whether for ring around the tub, grease on kitchen walls, or elsewhere.

Tip #9: This may sound strange but it really works! I used ashes (out of the fireplace, from a tree, must be wood ash, the lye in the ash breaks down the grease) wet down the ashes, to make them pasty, rub them on and let sit for a couple minutes, wipe off with wet cloth and with minimal effort it REALLY COMES OFF!!! I have been through a lot of moves, we average, one a year, and we always rent so I have tried everything and this is the only thing I have found that works. I hope this helps (and yes, it was A LOT OF BUILD UP from previous tenants, we don't always get to rent the best places but at least we always have a home!).

Tip #10: I've used a strong vinegar water solution but recently I discovered Dawn Power Dissolver, for dishes. It cleans everything! Just spray on, let it set for a minute and the grease comes right off. I use it to clean my range hood where that dust and grease mixture is impossible to remove, works like a charm. I use it to clean my stove top too.

Tip #11: "Greased Lightening" is excellent for removing grease from the stove or what may have splattered onto cabinets or countertops. Greased Lightening can be purchased from nearly every grocery store, or at least from Walmart or Target, or similar stores.

Tip #12: I use the orange 409 on my walls and it takes off all the grime and children finger prints and streaks too. I have never noticed it hurting my paint so just be careful but it works like a charm...Alyssa

Tip #13: You could use Lestoil. It's a great cleaner for grease. I've used it on grease stains on clothing too and it get's it out every time!

Tip #14: Try Dollar Tree store and get a product called Awesome. I used it on my range hood that has a rough surface & it is the cleanest it has ever been.
