If the paint started coming off just from a damp cloth, then there really isn't anything you can do. Apparently the paint they used to do the walls cannot be cleaned or it will just rub off like you experienced. When she comes just tell about it, and see what suggestions she makes. The only thing I could think of is repainting with the proper paint. If you go to any paint store you just ask which paints can be cleaned, and they will point you in the right direction. Good luck

If it is anything above a flat finish,the mr. clean magic sponge will wipe off the dirt. With the paint coming off, it could be the results of a cheap paint used. Most good quality paints should not be coming off the wall with a simple cleaning.

I've tried the mr. Clean magic sponge and it took some paint off with it.  Not a good idea for flat paint, and mine is a light beige color.  I would love any suggestions.  I'm trying Green Magic made by clorox, and it's still wet.  Update in a few minutes... 

Nope it didnt work either.  Oh Well, I'll keep looking on here periodically for a miracle suggestion. Good Luck!!

  1. Begin by lining the floor with plastic where you’ll be working to prevent damage from excess water or spills.
  2. Use your vacuum’s brush attachment to remove loose dirt and cobwebs. Do not push the brush onto the wall surface, as loose dirt may smudge and leave marks. Allow the vacuum’s suction to lift the dirt away from the wall.
  3. Start at the top of the wall. You’ll want to clean from side to side and from the top to bottom in sections as you work around the room.
  4. Fill the bucket half to two thirds full of warm water.
  5. Add just enough detergent to create a few bubbles when the water is agitated. Adding too much soap will cause the walls to become sticky and attract more dirt.
  6. Dip the sponge in the water and squeeze out excess water.
  7. Wipe the wall down as explained in step three, stopping to wet and rinse the sponge frequently.
  8. Use the dry towel to wipe up excess moisture as you work.
