How to Remove Greasy Fingerprints From Walls! Easy Home Cleaning Ideas (Clean My Space)

Greasy fingerprints happen everywhere. Here's the mind=blown method for removing them! Visit www.cleanmyspace.com for more details.

For example, I use coconut oil as a post-shower moisturizer. I also have allergies and sneeze about 6 times in a row at rather inopportune times. Those two random pieces of information meld together to create numerous greasy handprints on my bathroom wall caused by me using the wall as a support structure during one of my sneezing fits. I'm sure you have similar stories.

An abrasive product or all-purpose cleaner won't work on greasy wall fingerprints. Also, you can ruin your paint job if you aren't careful!

I have a ridiculously simple solution.

Here's what you need:

- Chalk (white)

- Microfibre cloth (dry)

- Water

See, I told you this was simple.

Here's what to do:

- Take a piece of chalk rub it over the fingerprints. Remember to use it on an angle. If you use the chalk on a sharp edge, you'll leave small scratches in the paint.

- Leave it for 5 minutes or so.

- Take a dry microfiber cloth and dust off the chalk residue. You'll see remnants of the chalk directly over the oily marks. That means the chalk has stuck to the oil and removed it from the wall (success!!).

- Add a bit of water onto the microfiber cloth and go over the prints once more, to wipe up the dusty prints. Let it dry and you'll see, the oily marks are goners!

This is magical...I love doing this trick because it's so easy and works like a charm.

Give it a try and see what you think!

Greasy Fingerprints on Walls:
Use a white chalk and color the stain and let it sit for about 5 minutes.
Then use a clean dry microfiber cloth and clean the residue away.
Then dampen the microfiber cloth and clean it of with a S motion.

Hi Melissa! I have hardwood floors in my bathroom. The grain is exposed on the wood so there are grooves, if that makes sense. There has been this residue on the floors since we moved in that I can't get off! It seems like a polish or something oily...things like painters tape won't stick to the surface and it's always slick feeling, any suggestions to remove it??

kylie turuva

Keith Moran

Like freya wilson, does anyone know how to get rid of the oil stains from blutack off the wall? :( 

von Pete

Wow thank you my kids are messing up my walls!!

Karen Call

The person's walls in the vid are painted with an oil-based paint. It's clear to see from the shiny gloss. You can tell the difference between oil-based and latex based paint by using a small bit of acetone-based nail polish remover on a rag on an inconspicuous spot on the wall....if nothing pulls up, it's oil-based. If paint comes up, it's latex based.

Oil-based paint is typically what's used in the kitchen in apartments in the U.S. However, in the rest of the rooms in the house...if you have children with greasy fingerprints, if a few drops of dish soap + vinegar + hot water don't pull it up, it will need to be repainted.

Pamela Williams

That didn't work on my walls, I have Fish oil? what do I use for fish oil stains?

Dazzler -

Didn't work at all just looks as bad as before ☹️

Tips , cooking, Animals

What about on pink wall paint? Same white chalk?

Kabir Singh

Can anyone confirm that this works?

Turquoise Blue

So much of whether this works comes down to paint type and texture on the walls. This will work on the type and quality of paint Melissa has on her walls, but WILL NOT work on that crappy, lower-quality flat apartment paint many of us are stuck with (at least in the States). If you try to clean that horrid flat paint in apartments, oil stain or not, all you do is smear the stains and remove the paint from the walls.

Mads TeaParty

How do you clean your walls on a regular basis? I would really like to know and Love your videos they have really help me out. Thanks so much


And why didn’t you do the video with old oil stain marks? Of course any new stain will probably come off without hassle. You could have truly prepared for the video by staining the wall the week before or more and then creating the video with the method.

Lady Elizabeth

I have a problem in my bedroom with oily marks. I'll try this out for sure.

I wish I was the little microphone on the sweater : )

Joshua Callum McBride


I've just tried this method on my wall, it makes them less visible than before.

I would recommend using this method if there are only a few marks, but in my case (many photos on the wall) it doesn't suffice!

nasser abdi

thank you


Didn't work, paid for some white chalk on ebay, followed instructions, now i have a massive scrape instead. This video should be removed.

Jack Sea

I have blu tac stains and this method did not do anything to help them at all

Will this work on flat finished paint as well?

Mike Music and Motivation

How do you marks off of walls like crayon marks or even oil stains ?

What if my walls are blue emulsion? Should I buy blue chalk? x

JaneelikeU Kim

Thx I'm going to clean my walls now!

Project Management

I have a grease stain on my wall paper. Can I use chalk on it or is there a better way to get rid of it?


Guys i tried this on Matt Paint...IT DOESN'T WORK! Matt paint just absorbs it and it just stays there, a grease patch or finger prints, doesn't go away. You have to paint over it again.


This is nonsense, at 1.08 seconds the prints remain , then at 1.09 (and supposedly before the prints are wiped away), they have gone.. my guess it's a new section of wall, try this at your own risk

JOhn WHiteClouD

Love your advise and your shirt

Sammy Sam

It's works..thanks

Leon K

When will it be posted? Cannot wait! Thanks Melissa!


what if the surface was black? do you use black chalk?


How do you get old grease marks from a frying pan (underside not the inside)


Just use trisodium phosphate. It's faster and more effective. No waiting or chalk dust.

Tamanna Begum

it can't work properly

Emily Robertson

How to Remove Tar, Grease and Oil Based Spots from Carpet and Rugs

363 385 views | 15 May. 2012

This is an effective

This is an effective method for removing difficult and stubborn tar, grease and oil based spots from your carpets and rugs by http://www.procleaner.biz. Summer is coming and for Hazleton PA residents that means fresh tar from road work and hot driveways. I'll show you safe and professional methods using household items to easily take away those unsightly spots.


Lanolin in Dish detergent will bleach your carpet, laundry detergent is what you need to use or a lot of ppl are going to have discolored spots on their carpet.

_Wimza _

For all of you that either walked oil in yourselves or your dopey mrs like in my case.. 1001 spray, took me three attempts and now the stain is pretty much gone.

Rebecca Parrish

I work in a big warehouse and the forklifts and chariots constantly leave black grease around and there was a huge glob of it in the freezer that I didn't notice till I had tracked it around and I managed to get it in my cream colored carpet, so I'm going to try this and see if it works out. I'll update later.

Colyn Colyn

good tips, off to get the required goods for countless oil stains walked in from our garage in our rental apartment. Wish me luck, the carpets are beige o-O will take a before and after shot for you.

Doug Rose

This does not work! Tried the denatured alcohol and it did nothing. Dawn dishwashing liquid took heavy grease right out of my carpet.

How do u remove crisco? Out of carpet

Catus Jack

Denatured Alcohol and 4 oz water to 1/4 teaspoon Dish detergent - cloth

Brenda DeVries

I really appreciate this video. I have some stubborn grease stains on my carpet, and can't wait to try this out. Also, I returned home from a weekend-long trip out of town (Thursday through Monday) to find the corner of the carpet nearest to the bathroom completely soaked with water, and the whole room smelled like mildew. I sopped up the water the best I could with towels, and opened the window and turned on the fan. Is there anything else I can do to remove the mildew smell from  the carpet?

You are very welcome and keep tuning in for more DIY carpet spot cleaning tips.

Mario Fromadistance

Wow! Thank you. :-)

Mackel B Lewlis

slight variation: i rubbed in liquid dish detergent without water, waited a few minutes, then proceeded with the blotting using instead 90% rubbing alcohol. worked pretty great.

john thor

Do you know what kind of stores would would have the alcohol?

Maxime Desjardins

very nice video i must say, i have not tried yet, but i have some wd-40, release all, vinegar, resolve (spray'n'wash), butane gas, clr


I've got an entire bottle of vegetable oil in my carpet. How screwed am I?

Ray's World

I put a car jack into the trunk, its wheels had grease on them (lubricant chassis grease type stuff). Whilst the jack was secured and on a large piece of cardboard, it worked its way loose during the drive and rolled all over the trunk carpet, which now has many grease stains. Will give this is a try!

Tammy Lawman

I was thrilled to find your video after a houseguest tracked greasy footprints all through the house. The carpet is less than 2 years old and I thought it was completely ruined. The denatured alcohol and water/dish soap worked great on all the spots except the two heaviest and I thought I'd try those again tomorrow to see if it will clear up. It's much better than it was so thank you!

Raging Surf

Wow, this works great. Thanks, Bob!


My boat sunk a couple times last summer :-( --- and now the indoor outdoor carpet is all stained with probably oil/gas. How would you attack large areas like this ??!?

David Allen

This is a great post Thanks. My carpet had the same great result. Good man.


Does this work for grease that's been in carpet for months? Does Wal-Mart carry that stuff?

Anitra Logan

Thank you so much!!

Jill Brogan

Thankew so much - Great information. On my way to get denatured alcohol. Hope they sell it in smaller quantities.

Dolores Larrick

This is a very helpful video! Thank you. Can you tell me will it work for a WD_40 stain my son got in our carpet. I have been attempting this but maybe I need to work on it longer? Thanks

Anna Jolie

Will this work if the stain is a few days old 

Denise Evans

I started just using the rubbing alcohol on stains that have been in my carpet since moved in. Not sure oil based, or water based but the alcohol alone has helped but the spots aren't dry yet. I'll be back to comment. Thank you Robert for the tip because I would have NEVER thought to try alcohol, and worse case scenario, I'll go down an buy some denatured;) I also had the Dawn detergent ready, 1/4 tsp in 4 oz. thank you again, Denise


Great tip, thank you!

Tracey Smith

I wonder if I could try this on a sweatshirt?? My zipper hoody is trashed from work.. It used to be pink.. Now it's grey with stains everywhere!! Can u help? Do u think this might work?? I work with boxes and mail.. And the trucks being in the warehouse running... the Diesel fuel and the dirt from the boxes just ruin my clothes.. But I only care about my hoody.. Cuz it's thick and durable.. I wanna try my best to keep it somewhat clean.. Maybe if I soak it overnight in the detergent or alcohol maybe it may take some of the harsh stains out? What do u think? All my stains are oil based stains.. Definitely! And they've also been washed in the washer and dryer prior to me writing this.. As I've been wearing this hoody for a few months that it's been cold.. So if you have any suggestions I'd greatly appreciate it thank you so very much and have a great day


Hi Bob,I have some serious tar like substance on my berber carpet and tried your method to no avail. This sticky substance had been put on the concrete flooring to use as an adhesive, I believe, for linoleum a long time ago. After the carpet layers were done laying carpet I noticed black spots in several areas. Do you have any suggestions for their removal? after dabbing the spot with both alcohol and then soapy water (yes, I used what you recommended) some of the sticky substance can be picked off, but none of it ended up on the towel, and there is still plenty on there that I am not able to peel off. Please help! Thank you!

Vicki Clark

Thanks Robert!! My husband took down an old ceiling fan and placed it on our beige carpet, and a bright yellow oil leaked out. I immediately started soaking up the oil with paper towels. My first instinct was to spray the spot with ordinary foam carpet cleaner but I went to YouTube instead, and found this video. I did not have denatured alcohol but I found some "Goof Off" paint and tar remover (main ingredient is xylene) under the sink. I put Goof Off on a white cotton rag and applied it to the stain, just as the video shows. After just a few applications of Goof Off, the yellow oil disappeared from the carpet and no longer showed on the white rag. Once the Goof Off evaporated, I gently cleaned the area with a mild solution of water and Dawn dishwashing liquid to get the oily feel out of the carpet. It worked! A one year old $800 carpet saved, and my husband is forgiven. :)

Cole Averill

I followed your guide only I used isopropyl alcohol instead of denatured alcohol and it worked great. Thanks for the tip! 

Patrick Dillon

Thanks for the video. You said dish detergent, but you showed laundry detergent. So that was a bit confusing.


Good work, thanks for sharing


Thanks for the great tip Bob! For our grease marks from dropping a hinge pin on our off white carpet, before trying the Denatured Alcohol I thought it would be a good idea to try your soapy solution first. So I chose DAWN Platinum which we have on hand and mixed it one tsp with 8 oz. water. Amazingly, it worked great!

C Drummys

Will this work on old stains too??

Kevin 04

Now I have oil stains on my cars carpet I use the dish soap to get the stains out of the carpet correct?

-SMP- scientific method perspective

Better than all the other YouTube videos I found

Alice Delaney

would methylated spirits or ordinary alcohol work?

missj Stephens

omg if i would have known about this earlier....... group one reality is trying to charge us 850 dollars for the livingroom carpet because of oil stains.


hi there, my shop down the road sells denatured alcohol but its bright purple (presumably to put me off drinking it) - will this stain the light carpet purple?
