boo for the bald man
Tuesday, July 22, 2008

Discovered today (the hard way) that the "Mr Clean Magic Eraser" takes the paint off my walls.

I have lost a dear friend.

And the bald man and I did not part ways amicably.

Luckily the paint he removed was low on the wall near the baseboard, in an obscure part of the house. (About where a little boy wearing cowboy boots might kick the wall, for example.) But it was still a dirty trick Mr. Clean pulled, after earning my trust by gently removing scuff marks for so many years.

Edit: I realized I was using the "50% stronger Magic Eraser". I'll test out the regular strength version, and see if me and baldy can't have a reconciliation.

Ask your builder for some paint or at least the paint color so you can pick up a pint for touchup.

Oh, I have some of the left over paint. I'm just too lazy to get it out yet. I'll wait until my kids do a bit more damage. :-)

Ugh! I hate it when that happens. It's like trying to keep a new pair of shoes clean, only to have a billion people step on your feet. Hope you are enjoying your new pad!!

Awww stink! I had heard those were the best ever.

I can't afford to lose my paint everytime though. :(

Could it be that your paint hasn't had time to cure? I know you guys just moved into a new home, was the paint new? I can't remember the exact time paint needs to dry before you wash it but I seem to remember it being some weirdly long time. 60 days maybe?
