How Do I Clean Walls With Flat Paint?

My walls are painted with flat paint. I have a three year old grandchild. There are many unknown spots on the walls. The Mr. Clean sponge leaves residue and you can see every place I've tried to clean.


What can I use on flat paint that won't show after cleaning?

Mr. Clean sponge worked well on my Sherwin Williams flat painted walls, they are ten years old. I think you're out of luck, sorry.

Chances are that you aren't seeing residue from Mr. Clean, rather, Mr. Clean is taking the flat paint right off the walls! If the walls were painted with basic "contractor's cheapo" paint, that is what will happen.

Well,This is high grade paint and less than three years old. I did not know they were using flat paint. I just picked the colors and the brand. So,If anyone hears of a good way, please let me know. Thanks, for the input.
