Marks on the walls from stickers

Sometime ago it seemed like a good idea to put wall stickers on my son's bedroom wall.

Now he's grown out of that theme and we've peeled them off and they've left a dirty residue behind.

Does anyone have any tips for getting this off please? Thanks.

What about a magic eraser sponge? I used one on some leftover sticky tape residue and it dealt with it quite well. No experience with wall stickers though.

Is there residue left behind from the actual sticker or is there just dirty residue on the wall from the sticker being left there for so long? I think your best bet would be wipe the wall using this sponge It shouldn't have any issues removing the residue marks.

Spray the mark with some WD40 and the glue will rub off.

It's those big stickers Mae for bedroom walls. Some marks are from the glue plus dirty.

I forgot about the magic eraser - just retrieved mine from the cupboard and have given it a go in one area. Will check in the morning, but it definitely got some off smile. Thanks for the reminder.
