I have matte finish walls and have discovered that the dog has left saliva on the wall (his dog food bowl is right next to it). I've tried cleaning it off with soap/water and the magic eraser, but the spots remain. Any tips, besides repainting?

Get a spray bottle and add 1/4 cup vinegar 1 tablespoon baking soda and 1 tablespoon Dawn liquid dish soap add water and mix. This removes marks that the dogs made on my walls like when they shake themselves, etc. but doesn't make wall shinny.

I removed slimy nose prints on my storm door when Sparky wanted in by rubbing with old towel and hydrogen peroxide. It worked better than any household cleaner, but better check for paint damage before you do it in the middle of plain sight!
