A degreaser might be ok depending on the wall - what type of paint. Also - keep in mind that even if you get the grease off - it may leave an etching into the paint (meaning the paint where the grease splatter was is now discolored).

If the house will be repainted, I'd go for a degreaser and them a new paint job will cover any evidence of the issues.

The degreaser is the best advice.Just don't rub too much on latex paint or the paint will rub down to the drywall.

Test, test, test.
You need to use the degreaser on a small hidden area to see if it discolors or strips the paint.

Ummm....Maybe I missed something here. The question is how to CLEAN a wall with grease, not how to just hide it.

Use mustard powder! At first, you should wet the contaminated area with water, then sprinkle it abundantly with mustard powder. Finally, clean the surface with a clean dry cloth.
That's all)

Why mustard powder? That's a new one on me. I am not afraid to use many commercial cleaning products. I read the directions and warnings before I purchase anything new. If it seems iffy I do not buy it. When I work cleaning houses, I always wear gloves and an apron to protect me and my clothes.

Whooah, I dont even understand several of these answers! Have you guys been hitting the beers???

Yes, what kind of paint is on the wall nearby. Be carefgul using sponges or Magic Erasers. ME's can probably remove the grease but also may remove the semi gloss finish. Try ONLY in a small spot and if it looks all right, go ahead. Use a good de-greaser. There are many out there. One of my customers likes 409. It DOES work well but I find it too harsh on my skin even wearing gloves. Plus it smells icky.
Good luck with this one.
