I made the stupid mistake of blu-tacking everything to my walls which has left behind loads of marks in my Uni room. Anyone have any idea how to remove them , or I'll get money taken out of my deposit

Oh and also, one of my printer cartridges managed to leak bright blue ink onto my wall... anyone know how to get this out?

Sorry Mods, didn't know where to put this, theres no sort of DIY forum.

As in small pieces of blu tak or oily stains :holmes:

If it is the former just use another piece of blu tak to collect it up.

You can get tester pots for free or for really cheap, so get a few of those that you think match the colour then try it out. Saves you having to buy a big pot as well since there should be enough in the tester just to cover the oily spots.

i've used sugar soap pretty effectively in the past, you can buy it in wilkinsons... it's used when decorating to clean walls down before painting and stuff, (well that's what my parents used it for) be warned though, if the paint on your walls is not very thick (likely if it's a student flat and they just did it on the cheap), then it comes off if you scrub too hard... so just kinda, dab at it with a cloth (wear gloves as the mix dries your skin out really quickly... it says that on the tin, it's not lying). Another problem you might have is if the walls haven't been properly cleaned in ages... the dirt from that can come out, as happened to me and I ended up with black streaks down the wall, but you can just wipe that off. It might work on the printer ink too, not sure though.
