Fun tack, mounting putty or adhesive putty can be an easy way of sticking your child's drawings to the walls without leaving behind the holes that a push pin would. Unfortunately, it may seem to be difficult or impossible to clean when you decide to remove the drawings. Don't worry, the following information will save you from a weekend of repainting the room.
You are about to discover that cleaning fun tack naturally with coconut oil is really very easy. I'm going to demonstrate precisely how to clean fun tack from your painted walls, without using harsh chemicals.
Mounting putty or adhesive putty is a petroleum oil based product. Trying to remove it with water based cleaning products will not work and you will likely just end up damaging the paint on the walls eventually. Any oil based solvents will work on removing the stain from the paint without removing the paint itself. Coconut oil works very well because it is a solid at room temperature, which helped keep it on the stain long enough to dissolve the putty without dripping down the wall.
