The walls of my piece were painted two yeas ago. Well done, good paint and not in any way scratched or blistered or cracked. Except, the use of a woodburner, often boiling water on it, has left the walls looking very sad.
Do I repaint - (expensive option) or clean them?
If clean is best, what would you use to do this with? :?: :?:

It depends on what the paint is, if its gloss paint

Just soap and water, I would say, the use of anything else would mar the surface finish of the paint

If the paint is an open texture type, emulsions, satin finish, I would wash down with a "sugar soap", and repaint, wood burners are not exactly the best thing in a small area, because of the smoke fumes coming out of the burner, when you reload the burner, and smoke particles sticking to the walls etc

Lessive St Marc is very good for washing down paint work. You can find it in any supermarket and it's not too expensive.
But don't forget your rubber gloves and protect any wooden surfaces.
