How To Remove Scuffs On Walls
If you’ve ever been to Home Depot for paint and had the paint chap try to up-sell you to the Uber-Pigment-Double-Primer-Easy-Wipe paint option that’s a mere $30 extra per gallon, and had the gall to stick to your guns and the cheaper paint option, you’re not alone. And well done, you! And then six months later, when you discover a plethora of scuff marks all over your walls that (shockingly) don’t come off with soap and water, you slightly kick yourself for not having made life easier on yourself and bought the super-upgraded paint option.
All is not lost, however! You’ve come to the right place. At Stone Surface Specialists, we are experts on All Things Cleaning, and we have three easy-peasy solutions for all your wall scuffage issues.
1 Mr Clean Magic Eraser sponges. If you’ve never used these, they are a MIRACLE invention. Simply dampen the sponge and rub over scuffs, scratches, marks – basically any foreign body clinging to your walls – and watch them disappear.
2 If you don’t have a Magic Eraser sponge or they’re against your principles or you’ve tried them and they didn’t work, non-gel toothpaste may be the magical solution to all your wall-related woes. Squeeze some onto a cloth, massage it over the scuff or stain, and then rinse and dry. Toothpaste is mildly abrasive, and the tiny little beads contained in each squirt will gently and evenly remove foreign bodies from your walls.
3 If you’ve tried the above and neither worked, or for some reason BOTH are against your principles, try making a thick paste with baking soda and water. Apply it to the wall on a soft, clean cloth, massage into the mark and then rinse and dry.
