    Don't know if they have varnish or lacquer on them. This house is over 50 years old. We bought it a yr ago. Its needs major remodeling and all new wiring, still has the original cloth wiring. The walls are beautiful and we love them. Every room except for kitchen and bathroom has the knotty pine walls and they need major cleaning. I've goggled it and came up with like 20 plus different ways to clean them. HELP!!!!

    Hello Babyreb88, I recommend using a product called Murphey's Oil Soap. It has been around for a long long time. I remember my Mom using it on the kitchen cabinets when I was a child. I don't even want to tell you how long ago that was. You can purchase it at Target. Hope this helps.

    I like Murphy's oil soap and a big car sponge.

    Thank you so much for your comments. The house was empty for 3 yrs when we bought it in foreclosure for a very good price. The ceiling tiles are falling out which left open spot for a bird to get in it at some point. So there is bird poo on the walls and it looks like a child wtote on the walls with a black magic marker. Don't know if its a regular marker or a permanent marker. The marker is my main concern. If I can't get it off then I will have to place furniture in odd spots to cover it up.
