Can I use a magic eraser on the wall?

Or will it take the paint off?
The cat has made a right mess splattering his dinner everywhere, I'm sure a magic eraser would shift it but don't want to ruin the wall.

The only way to find out is to try on a small area. You'll probably have to wipe the wall down with a clean cloth afterwards to get rid of any magic eraser residue.

Yes, what wow said, clean the wall afterwards.

Yes but if you rub too hard it'll remove the paint. Voice of experience.

I think it won't be a problem. If you don't rub too hard. smile

I tried to remove black smoke from a candle, but the eraser took the paint too. I had to repaint anyway.

Didn't remove my paint confused

Thanks. I've had a go on the wall which is a pale colour anyway and it seems fine. I'm not going to risk it on the darker coloured wall that got splashed with tea though, I might just put a picture or something in front of it!
