We are renting a apartment and when we moved in we didnt notice the runs from someone spraying deodorant on our bathroom wall, if there is any hometalker out there that knows how to clean it, i would greatly appreciate any tips you could give me? Thank-You!icon

    One cup of vinegar to one gallon hot water and a few squirts of Dawn dish soap. Use a sponge or soft cloth to wipe. Rinse often. Deodorant tends to be greasy.

      Thanks for the tip William, and it does seem to get greasy, and it changes the wall color when it runs down the wall because it left runs all down my bathroom wall. YUCK

    May have to clean the walls with alcohol . Then use oils and repaint .

      We rent and the landlords won't let us repaint because we would be altering the apartment?

    Sorry meant oils not oils. Autocorrect writes what it wants.

      What is Mean Primer? I've never heard of that before? Can it be used on walls even if we rent the house?

    Read above post . I kept typing the product name and autocorrect kept replacing it. So what I meant was to use a primer product then to repaint.

      Well you are absolutely right about painting the apartment because other people that live in our apartment complex paints there apartments because they get tired of looking at White walls, because it seems like every apartment you rent is always WHITE! I hate the color white? I just wish i knew how to paint. Please Reply back ASAP! Thank-You!

    Have you hung pictures ,etc . Then you have already altered their property . My advice is to talk to whoever is in charge.

      Yes we have hung pictures, etc. up, but that was allowed, but painting Isn't allowed because i asked and i was told absolutely not!
