Protect Wall From Grease Stains?

Good Questions

Q: I recently moved into a studio apartment that has a kitchen along one side of the main room. The stove is right next to a wall and there are grease stains on it from the previous tenant.

Is there something I can mount or hang next to the stove to avoid more grease stains when I cook? I've looked at temporary backsplashes but they are generally plastic and I'm afraid to put something that could melt next to my gas stove. Anyone have an idea of an inexpensive and temporary solution?
