1) Use Vinegar
Take a bowl and pour 1 cup of vinegar in it. Soak a cotton cloth in the vinegar and rub it gently over the stain. If you are dealing with tough stains, add ¼th cup of baking soda in the bowl to make a stronger cleaning agent. Take a clean rag, soak it in this solution, and wipe your walls clean. Make sure you start from the top and make your way down gradually to avoid drip marks. Remember to place a towel on the floor to catch any water drips.
2) Use Toothpaste
Apply a pea-sized amount of toothpaste on the stained area. Leave it for 10 minutes and then wipe it off with a clean, white cloth. Repeat the process if required.
3) Use Baking Soda and Water
For this method, you need to make a paste comprising baking soda and warm water. Mix ¼th cup of baking soda in a bucket of lukewarm water. Use a cloth to gently rub this paste on the stains from top to bottom. Rinse and clean using a clean, dry rag.
