i was just thinking, the marks that blu/white tac leave surely cant be THAAAT bad..to the point where u just cant wipe it off?
My accommodation letter says that blue-tac (and white-tac) marks can take up to five coats of paint to cover and if I use it I will have to cover the cost to do that. I don't fancy paying for people to do five coats of paint :rolleyes:

you could of course just paint over it

I heard putting talc on would remove the grease but no idea if that works

Ok I think I'll nip to B&Q and go with the pain option, I mean the talc sounded pretty viable but c'mon!

If you sprinkle on the crushed bones of the innocent, and then complete a ritual dance and chant at the dead of night, it should be sorted.

Didn't anyone look at that link someone just posted? I just went on it and it looks really good, and pretty cheap. Certainly would solve the problem and let you put posters and such like all over the walls.

This can actually work, it's good for getting scuff marks off too. Doesn't always work but it's worth a go if you've got some white bread spare. If it does work it's saved you the cost of a sample pot Just get the middle of a slice and carefully rub it over the stain/scuff mark.

Mmm, that looks good! But do you think it would leave marks on the walls, though?

Doesn't it!

No, I don't think it would. Look on the original link http://gripping-stuff.com/gs-pp.htm (the one I posted was after I'd navigated to the "buy now" page, and contains less information). Although obviously they aren't going to say it makes marks, it does say it is easily removable and that it leaves "no messy walls...[or] stains". For £5 for 5meters, I think it's worth the risk to try it.

I thought I was ever so clever putting up a huge montage of posters on my bedroom wall, then when I took them down, the blue tac ripped huge chunks of plaster off the wall, so now I have to pay for it to be replastered ;(
Wow, the room must've been poorly plastered... There's no way the force from ripping of blu-tack should pull it off!

I think I will as well - my walls are painted at my house so I'll have a go there, at least I won't lose a deposit here

How about fixing the posters to the wall with a dab of wet paint on each corner?
Or hanging the posters from helium-filled balloons?
