Dip a piece of flannel in spirits of wine, rub the greasy spots gently once or twice, and the grease will disappear.
Oil-Marks on wall-paper, or the marks where inconsiderate people rest their heads, are a sore grief to good housekeepers, but they can be removed without much trouble. Take pipe-clay or fuller's earth and make it into a paste about as thick as rich cream with cold water; lay it on the stain gently, without rubbing it in; leave it on all night. It will be dry by morning, when it can be brushed off, and, unless an old stain, the grease-spots will have disappeared. If old, renew the application.
