The smell of bacon is irresistible. It pairs so well with so many recipes… but are you tired of seeing greasy stains on your kitchen walls after cooking it up? Well, the good news is that there is a way to get stuck on grease off your kitchen walls.

All you need to remove the grease is water, baking soda, vinegar, and dish soap—all things you likely already have in your home.

To get rid of the grease, start by wiping down your walls with warm water. This will help loosen any congealed grease and make it easier to clean. Once it’s softened, mix some soap with warm water and wipe down the grease stains again.

Splatter Screen for Frying Pan

A splatter guard can help prevent grease in the first place.

For any stubborn stains that resist the warm water and soap approach, you’ll need to grab your baking soda. Mix equal parts baking soda and water, stirring into a paste. Apply your paste to the grease, allow it to dry, and gently wipe away with a cloth.

If you’re still having issues removing stains, bring in the vinegar. Mix equal parts vinegar with water in a spray bottle, spray the stains, allow to sit for 5 minutes, and then wipe. But with this method, it might be best to spot-check an area depending on what your kitchen backsplash is made from.

These natural cleaner approaches can help keep your kitchen stain-free while you keep enjoying your bacon.
