How do I remove pencil from the wall?

sunny_dayzAugust 30, 2008

I hung pictures and marked with pencil on the wall. Did I mark with a dot? NO! I drew a line, thinking it wasn't going to show. Now that the line the pictures are hung from has stretched a half inch, guess what's showing? UGH! I've tried an eraser. It made even darker lines. Now I've tried soap and water and no luck with that either. Short of repainting, any ideas? It shouldn't be this hard to get off pencil!

Try rubbing with a laundry stain stick like Shout. Then wipe with a soft cloth. Test in an inconspicuous spot first.

Thanks for the suggestions. I ended up using Cerama Bryte. It's meant for cooktops, but got that pencil right off the wall!
