My three year old son got a hold of a pencil and marked up several
walls about three weeks ago just before we took a long trip. I have used an
eraser and dishwasher soap to try to clean the marks and it does not seem to be
working well. The walls on which the pencil marks are located have latex paint
on them. Can anyone tell me the best way to get rid of the pencil marks? Any
help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks,
Well, I hate to sound like a shill for Mr. Clean, but I've used the
Magic Eraser to remove white board marker from cheap latex paint and
avoided the repaint. I've tried all kinds of cleaners and erasers, but
this thing actually works for me. Cheap thing to try, and if it works
for you like it does for me - you avoid the paint job (bleeping renters!).
