  • That is why flat paint is the cheapest. I would call a home improvement store and ask. You could do more damage than it is worth using the wrong things. good luck.

  • Thanks for all of your answers. Yeah, we are renting our house, so the paint was already on the walls. :( I will try the magic eraser. Thanks again!
