    Pfft can't be assed with that. Apparently there is something called 'sugar-soap' you can use. But I'd rather use something I have in the house if I can. I might just have to find something to put over it.

    I didn't tell her to empty bottles of nail polish remover on the walls.. You just apply a little directly to the tac and it dissolves it :p:

    well I just tried the nail varnish remover and yep, removed the paint as well. So don't do that. I've heard things like floor cleaner work, going to try this tomorrow.
