My living room walls are a deep maroon color (designer name was "burnt
cherry"!) The paint, I believe, is a satin type finish. I had candle
sconces on the wall, and the candles have left sizeable soot stains on the
wall. If I have to repaint ... well let's just say I'd rather NOT repaint!
Any suggestions on how to remove the soot without making a big fat mess will
be most appreciated.

There's soot and there's soot I guess, but when the oil furnace left
soot, near the furnace vents mostly but also where the two x fours are
in the ceiling, and especially where the nails are, I was told to get
an emulsifier, from a janitorial supply company. They only sell
gallons but it was under 10 dollars iirc. I mixed it as directed and
sprayed it on one area and it didn't do much. But I'm going to mix it
stronger or use it straight, when I have time. Earlier if you ask me.
There might be more than one emulsifier, but I said what I wanted it
for and they had no doubt what product would be best. The name is
downstairs if you want it.
