How to remove magic sponge marks on flat paint walls?
I recently moved into a rental, and there were some marks/dirt on this particular wall. Just by habit, I wiped the spots lately with a magic sponge, as I’ve always had luck with on painted surfaces. However, this while is painted with perhaps the most flat paint I have ever encountered. It’s almost chalky.
As I hope you can see in the photo, I have tried to fix it using the simplest method is in order not to create more damage. What I have tried so far is just using a damp cloth to wipe. And then a dry lintless cloth to lightly buff. I attempted to feather out the areas, and now I have an even bigger eyesore. Any ideas out there would be greatly appreciated!
