Playdough Stain on a Wall

Does anyone know how to remove playdough from a textured wall? My 2 year rubbed it in pretty hard and the more I try to remove it, the more the paint comes off. Help!

I would try a paste of baking soda and water .. it'll get into the grooves of the wall. Or a magic eraser .. those seem to get rid of everything!

Good Luck

Look for a substance that does not easily come apart like a gum art eraser.

Press it on the play dough and gently pull off.

Some cheap calks pull off easily as do old thick glues that have lost their stickyness when almost dry. I would experiment on some rough wood before the wall.

Hi Raecael

You can get rid of it by painting over it with a stain blocking paint primer. Kilz is one brand Wallmart has it. I had pie dough on my ceiling once and it did get rid of it.

How do I get purple playdough off a decorative white wall? We were able to scrap 98% up, but the other 2% appears inbedded in the surface of the wall. Help. It's the neighbors wall!
