We recently bought a a home. It was built in 1968. We have notice sticky orange marks running down the walls of our master bath. It has no smell and feels like syrup. It is around the wall where it meets the tile in the walk in shower, where the ceiling meets the wall, and spots in the middle of the wall. Also, we do not have a fan in the bathroom if taht makes a difference. Doe anyone have an idea of what this is and how to fix it? PLEASE HELP!!!!!

Sounds like tar and nicotine on the walls and ceiling........as the shower steams-up the "dirt" runs down the wall in streaks....

Easy to clean......just wash the walls/ceiling with soap and water.......

Thanks for the response. I will wash it down and then go over the paint with Kilz twice and repaint. the people we bought the house from did not smoke but i wonder about the owners before our seller. I will ask the neighbors.
