  • I just use a wash cloth and my cleaner that I make, nothing special. I know exactly what you are talking about. It is so much easier if the walls are painted with a semi or high gloss paint.

  • I hate that job. We use a degreaser usually.

  • Unless its a glaring mess I don't usually clean the walls until we have a family gathering. Walls are one of those chores that as soon as you start wiping away spots the rest of the spots become more obvious.

  • I use vinegar & water to clean my walls. Sometimes a magic eraser.

  • Mr. Clean Magic Eraser works REALLY well. So does bleach.

  • We have white walls and I use clorox wipes, if it is too hard to get off then I use a magic eraser on some spots.
    Most of the stains in our home happen to be dirt smudges when it comes to walls or dust along the borders.

  • Magic eraser works, but it removes any glossy finish. I still think it looks better clean though.

  • i use majic eraser or lysol and warm water mixture. i do this about once every 2 months or so because when I do I take everything off the walls and clean one room at a time..... it's time consuming but it makes the whole room fresh again.

  • I'm a big fan of the magic eraser, but my walls are matte so it isn't a problem.
