Day 10: Easy Tricks for Removing Wall Scuffs

    I can comment! I too love the Mr. Clean Eraser – I have a lot of walls and 4 sets of paw pads that get everywhere! Use it with care on gloss or semi-gloss finish, it can abrade that shine. For broader fingerprints or paw dirt, I use a little Murphy’s Soap in warm water with a normal spounge, then wipe dry!
