Same. This is also what I use to prep the walls before painting.

Sugar soap. The kind that comes in a bottle.

If there are any hard to get off bits then I use one of those stain eraser pads.

I have thought of sugar soap but worry i will take pain off.

I would only use sugar soap as an end of lease cleaner.  In between the best thing I have found is baby wipes.  I even removed crayon drawing with them.

A damp cloth, for general marks and it comes off fine.  For scuffs a bit of gumption usually works.

gumpton (is that how you spell it?) if it is really stubborn.

If you are worried about the pain, then just don't do it.  biggrin.gif

Not a job that is on my to do list, like deep cleaning a toilet

sugar soap and I've forgotten the name of it but its a bathroom cleaner with bleach in it...fab.

The sharp edge of my tongue.

Otherwise sugar soap. Gumption is more likely to remove paint than correctly diluted sugar soap.

I've just been wondering about this exact subject (how sad is that for a friday night? LOL)

I need to get biro off the walls.
Is there a faster way to clean walls than just a cloth and elbow grease?  For the general areas I mean, I know I'll have to scrub the biro off...though with what I don't know, I've tried magic erasers and gumption already sad.gif  Why hasn't someone invented something that we can plug in and just wipe the walls with and they get cleaned? LOL

Me Too, wear gloves though it's horrid for your hands lol

Edit: To get pen, perm marker, crayon, anything inky or ingrained off walls spray with WD40 leave for 10 mins and do a bit harder then a wipe and comes off no problems original.gif

Magic eraser didn't work? That's surprising. Somtimes you have to rub really hard and it still leaves the indent where the pen has been, but the mark has gone. Otherwise try ajax liquid diluted in water. I use that to clean large areas of my walls. I would test this on a small area of your wall first to make sure it doesn't remove the paint or anything though.

Just finished doing the inside of my house.

$10 for tub of 75 Pine O Cleen Scrub'n'Wipe Citrus Scent Wipes.

38 Weeks pregnant, loved not having to cart around a bucket of water & constantly bend down to rinse out a sponge.

Had some walls that had a bit of mildew from air conditioners and the Scrubbing side worked a treat.

I dropped the wipes on the floor as i finished with them and my awesome 3 year old followed me with a plastic bag and picked them all up for me.

I started using borax dissolved in warm water - made the walls lovely and clean. (Turns out they are white walls not cream!) Normally I use sugar soap- particularly for tough marks or exit mould/domestos if they are really bad.

Orange Power spray, then wipe off.  Works really well.  I habe also used the magic eraser whichis also good.

Floor cleaner (in hot water) applied with the spongy thing on my car window washer followed with a vinegar rinse (to explode the mould spores).

Sugar soap and a p*ssed off attitude

Another fan of sugar soap for general walls and then magic eraser for marks.

I use sugar soap.  I admit I don't do it very often though. ph34r.gif
