Ingredients to Keep Handy:

a) Bread slice

b) Sponge

c) Vinegar

d) Dishwashing liquid

e) Warm water

  1. Step 1: Blot the Stain

    It is the first step to cleaning any liquid stain on any given surface. Blotting will help you prevent the stain from becoming tougher and setting itself firmly on the surface. In this case, use a slice of bread to absorb oil from your stone walls. You can also use a sponge to do the job. Make sure that you do not scrub the area as it will only spread the oily stain.

  2. Step 2: Treat with Vinegar

    Dampen a sponge with vinegar and gently scrub the stained areas on your walls with it. Keep at it until the stains disappear completely. You may have to repeat the process a couple of times. Clean the vinegar deposit from your stone walls using a damp sponge or a cleaning rag soaked in water. Now, pat the stained areas dry using a dry cloth.

  3. Step 3: Wash the Stained Areas

    Wash the stained areas of your walls to remove any oil residue. Fill a bowl with warm water and add 2 drops of dishwashing liquid to it. Mix well. Use an old toothbrush to scrub your stone walls. Finally, rinse off the soapy layer from your walls using a damp sponge. Pat the walls dry with a clean cotton cloth. You can try Vim Dishwash Gel for this as it is easily available in the market.

Your stone walls are now ready to impress!
