How to get mechanics grease off of our walls?

My husband is a mechanic and has the bad habit of touching the walls as he is passing by. When he does, he leaves mechanic grease on the wall.
I cannot get my husband to stop touching the walls, so I am at the point of trying to figure out how to clean it without wiping off the paint.

At the moment I use the Magic Pad. Its great but it looks like paint is slowly being taken off along with the grease.
When we eventually move out of this apartment, I would like to get our safety deposit back. But with the walls looking like they do, I don't think that will happen.
So has this been a problem with anyone else? How did you get the walls clean without taking off the paint?
Thanks for any and all help.
