If the hole is small enough, just rub the corner of a cake of white soap over the hole, and the soap will fill it just fine. I saw that technique years ago on "Queer Eye For The Straight Guy", and I've been using it ever since! (01/31/2010)

Depending on how small the holes are, plain white(not gel) toothpaste can be used to fill them. Let dry at least 24 hours before sanding/painting. (01/31/2010)

White toothpaste works for small holes. Just take a tiny amount and spread it with any straight edge at hand even a butter knife will do. Spread until blended with the white wall after drying for several hours. Can paint over this with any acrylic paint. (02/03/2010)

I've always heard that you can use white toothpaste to fill small holes. (02/03/2010)

Try white toothpaste, not the gel kind. Just smooth some on the hole and let it dry for 24 hours. Then you can gently sand it to smooth before painting, etc. (02/04/2010)
