Ink Marks on the Walls

Q.   Do you have a remedy for removing ink marks off walls? Angela

Try using hair spray on the Ink Marks. It will work on clothing and other things.  Wilma

Try spraying a little WD-40 on paper towel and rub lightly. Don’t spray directly on surface.  Terry

First, try talcum powder or cornstarch.  If that doesn’t work (and if the paint is scrub-able) try a spray cleaner, like 409.  If that doesn’t work, use nail polish remover. Mary Alice

Try using a little Bon Ami cleanser. Dampen a soft cloth, dab just a little of the cleanser on it and gently work the spot, stopping frequently to wipe and dry and be sure you’re not lifting the paint, too! If done lightly and assuming your paint is at least average quality, the spot should come off and the paint should stay. Also – for future reference, satin finish paints are generally easier to clean than flat finish.  Carol

Something I have used for most all marks on walls is a soft damp cloth & baking soda. Just use small circling motions & be gentle. This has taken any mark off that I come across. Good luck! Phyllis
