What is on the walls .. paint, tile, paper? If the surface is very
smoothe, a razor-blade scraper can get the heavy stuff. Mineral spirits
can cut grease. Fantastic and a green scrubber for the rest. If either
of these take the paint with the grease, the grease has dried and been
on the wall too long. Might want to think about tile or Formica just to
keep it easier to clean.
i have easy-off oven cleaner to try still. probably this coming
week i'll get to it. i'll check the kitchen section at home
depot to see what wall coverings i can use. maybe i can just
get a couple of pieces of formica and attach them covering
everything. and making future cleaning simple. thanks
for that idea.
Oven cleaner is a poor choice, even for ovens :o) If you have a hard,
flat surface, the razor scraper will get built-up hard grease.
Fantastic has always worked very well on kitchen grease for me, but
shouldn't be used on glass. If there is no vent hood, installing one
would help immensely.
Ok. Easy-Off did the trick. Some parts came off RIGHT AWAY!
Some just got better. So a little scraping with a putty knife
and some more Easy-Off should do it.
Thanks to all for the suggestions. Some stuff is difficult to
source here in Canada (like Greased Lightning).
