Darn... I just burned a whole pan of oil....
The kitchen is.... well wrecked at the monent, the roof is completely black.... and half the walls ...Im scrubbing everything and luckily only a bit of real damage can't be painted but this stuff just spreads around...

Anyone got a miracle idea for cleaning the bulk off so I can repaint...

My girlfriend is going to go BALLISTIC....

sorry i can't be of much help------the only thing i can think of is that those little white cleaning sponges really do work good on walls. for the life of me i can't remember what they are called. i'm sure you have alot of black to clean off, but the little white things might work really well for the finishing touch.

Do you mean the Mr. Clean magic eraser sponges? I've never used them but I know people that love them and say they work to get crayon off the walls...

Those Mr. Clean Erasers are great for getting spots off walls without hurting the finish.

Steve, after you get the worst of it off, I would wash everything down with a mixture of baking soda and water--then rinse. That will also help with the odor ;)

Sudsy ammonia or spic and span work well cleaning greasy smoke damage from walls/ceilings. Special primers are available for use after a fire. The soot and grease penetrate the surface. My suggestion would be to contact a comapny specializing in fire restoration, they would be able to tell you what kind of prodcuts to use - cleaners, type of paint etc., after a grease fire.
Good luck, glad it is limited to smoke damge and the place wasnt burned up :o

I don't know if this will work for your situation, but I recently discovered that a blend of isopropyl alcohol and clear blue dishwashing detergent worked wonders in removing stubborn kitchen grime.

I know you're oversea's - we have something called Killz - it's not a primer (can be used that way though) it's a sealer, and is especially for this type of situation. Before you paint or whatever you're going to do you need to clean it as best you can, seal it, then paint or wallpaper. Any hardware store will have a Killz type product. The house I just bought had some smoke damage upstairs and Killz worked great! Good Luck!

I know that here you can buy special sponges in the hardware store that are made to get smoke damage off of the walls. Other then that, I am not much help. Just glad you did not burn down the house and that you are OK.

Wow cool....

Susdy ammonia is easy and so is baking soda.... special sponges I'll see.. Im going to pain over a small part and see how it goes...
I'll seal the wall with PVA adhesive after dilted in water (works wonders on most stains in the wall and damp etc) I guess that the base of most of the specialist sealers ...and it can be added to emulsion paints as well for use in kitchens to make them more waterproof.

Luckily I'm not adverse to picking up a boiling pan of oil and throwing a wet towel over it.... only got minor burns from spitting oil and just the heat on the forarm... but its 1st degree no real damage worse than sunburn ....

Your hardware store should have a product called TSP. It is a powder(strong), but it should clean it. Just be sure to wear gloves and have the windows open. We sell alot at our store.
