When you cook meals in a kitchen, grease may splatter on your walls. The greasy build-up will be noticeable once it dries and can leave behind a sticky residue. If you do not wipe the grease off the walls after you cook a meal, it can stain the walls and leave behind unpleasant discolourations. Once you remove the grease properly, your kitchen walls will look more appealing.

Things you need

  • 1 tsp washing up liquid
  • 1/2 litre (1 pint) warm water
  • Bucket
  • Sponge
  • 220 g (1 cup) baking soda
  • Bowl
  • Soft cloth
  • Vinegar
  • Spray bottle
  • Tea towel
  • Towels

  1. 1

    Combine 1 tsp of washing up liquid with 1/2 litre (1 pint) of warm water in a bucket.

  2. 2

    Soak a sponge in the solution. Scrub on the walls to remove the grease stains. The washing up liquid will break apart the grease.

  3. 3

    Combine 237 ml (1 cup) of water with 220 g (1 cup) of baking soda in a bowl to create a paste. Apply the paste to heavy grease stains and allow it to dry. Brush the paste off with a soft cloth.

  4. 4

    Combine an equal amount of vinegar with warm water in a spray bottle if you still notice grease stains. Spray the solution over the grease areas and allow it to sit for five minutes. Wipe the area with a damp tea towel to remove the grease.

  5. 5

    Wipe the walls down with an absorbent towel to remove any excess water.

Tips and warnings

  • Buy a commercial kitchen degreaser if you still have difficulty removing the grease.
