  • It depends on what kind of paint is on the walls. If you don't know you should test anything you use on a place that doesn't matter to make sure it won't take the paint off.

  • I've heard good things about Mr. Clean's Magic Eraser.

  • What kind of surface is on your walls? Wallpaper or paint? If your paint is flat (or eggshell), be careful using anything like a Magic Eraser.

    Best bet is a mild cleaner (like Murphy's Oil Soap) diluted in warm water and a soft cloth and the hardest part....elbow grease and time.

  • Hand sanitizer. It works.
