  1. 1

    Fill the kitchen sink with warm water. Add a squirt of grease-cutting dish soap and mix it well.

  2. 2

    Dip a soft sponge into the soapy water and wring it out well. Scrub the walls gently to remove the grease. Rinse and wring out the sponge frequently.

  3. 3

    Rinse the walls with a clean rag and plain water. Remove excess moisture from the walls with a dry rag.

  4. 4

    Make a stronger cleaning solution for stubborn grease splatters. Fill a bucket with 1 gallon of warm water. Add 1 cup of borax powder and 2 tbsp of dish soap. Scrub the walls gently with a sponge and the cleaning mixture. Rinse the walls well with a rag and plain water, then dry thoroughly.

Tips and warnings

  • Mixing 1 gallon of warm water, 1 cup of household ammonia and 1 tsp of bleach-free dish soap creates another cleaning solution that will remove grease splatters. Scrub the walls with a sponge, then rinse and dry well. Work in a well-ventilated area and wear rubber gloves when using ammonia.
