Cleaning sensation Mrs Hinch, whose real name is Sophie Hinchliffe, garnered popularity after sharing her incredible cleaning tips on social media and TV. The cleaning star, who has also authored several books, has managed to gain a whopping 4.1 million followers on Instagram. Fans of hers have been so impressed with her tips, they have created their own social media groups dedicated to sharing cleaning and tidying tips.
On one of the groups, which receives hundreds of tips each day, a cleaning enthusiast asked how she can remove marks and smudges from her walls.
She asked: “Probably sounds a bit of a funny question, but does anyone know what I can use on my white painted walls to get rid of black marks and smudges that won’t take the paint off as well?
“I’ve painted at least four times already this year and really don’t feel like doing it again for a while. Thank you.”
The post was inundated with comments from Mrs Hinch fans.

A fifth social media user said: “Try a magic sponge.
“I paint with kitchen or bathroom paint as it’s washable /scrubbable (either in matte or soft sheen).
“Then I just use wet wipes for any marks.”
Another person said they also use Magic Erasers but that users should “be aware” of the results.
“I’ve used them and had excellent results but be aware, whatever you use, you may still be able to see where you cleaned,” they said.
“Check the details of the paint you’ve used. Some clean better than others.”
You can buy a pack of two Flash Magic Eraser Extra Power Cleaners for £2 from Sainsbury’s which works out at just £1 per eraser.
However, there are cheaper versions out there.
You can buy 10 Pizies Magic Cleaning Stain Erasers from Amazon for just £2.84, which works out at just 28p per sponge.
Some Mrs Hinch fans suggested using other methods.
One person said: “A plain white rubber works, like the ones you use for school.
“Works for where shoes have scuffed and left that black streak too.”
Another said: “Flash with bleach spray – will take them off, I do it all the time.”
Another person commented: “Bread – just roll.”
