Best is to use Metal scrubber to scrub the wall and make the dirt fall off with older paint if the wall colour is white.
for coloured wall Use detergent soap water if wall is smooth.....if wall surface is rough then never use water.
you can also use rubbing alcohol and water mixture.for smooth wall.

If you don't want to use plain old soap and water, Magic Erasers work really well -- http://www.mrclean.com/en_US/magic-eraser.do

I usually use Magic Erasers, or something similar to it. It works really well on those dark marks on the wall you get when you move furniture and it accidentally scrapes the wall.

If there has been smokers in the house, the walls as well as the curtains absorb the smell as well as the stain (ever heard of nicotine stains on someone's teeth). One of the best used for entire walls is a product called T S P. It is a concentrate found at any place that sells paint. Only bad aspect is that it has to be rinsed off with clean water, which makes it a time consuming job. This is used by many landlords, motel custodians etc. before re-painting the walls. BE SURE TO WEAR RUBBER GLOVES!

Depending on the wall paint there are many method to clean the paint some of them I suggest you
If the walls painted with Latex Paint then wash it using warm water and a nonabrasive all-purpose cleaner. Dip a clean sponge in the water, then wring it dry. Gently rub the wall. Pay special attention to areas that get touched often -- such as around doorknobs and light switches. Rinse with a second sponge and clear water.

If Walls Painted with Oil-Based Paint then wash it with substituting detergent solution for the cleaner or white vinegar mixture. Wring the sponge or cloth until only slightly damp. Texture-painted walls, such as those with a troweled finish, can be dust catchers and might require deeper cleaning. Add 1 ounce of borax to each pint of water to clean the wall.
