Step 1: Soak the Oil

Ensure that the paint on your walls is resistant to vinegar. Before applying vinegar on the stained area, test it on an inconspicuous area of your wall. Do not use a coarse scratchpad to remove oil stains. It can ruin the smooth finish of your walls. 

Step 3: Wash Your Walls 

Now it’s time to restore the shine and brightness of your kitchen walls. Squeeze 2-3 drops of dishwashing liquid in a bowl of warm water and mix well. Dip a sponge in this soapy solution and wipe the stained areas of the walls. Remove the soapy solution by wiping it off with a cloth dampened in plain water. Let the walls air-dry.
