- How to remove tyre marks from wall?
Slow day in the office here and boss is out, so I decided to ride down the stairs.. I’ve been meaning to try it for aages.
While I was successful, I think my boss will notice a couple of tyre marks on the wall from going round the corner.
Tried CIF, didn’t work too well, tried oil.. Any other suggestions?Posted 7 years agoD0NKSubscriber
Oooh, narrowish bars, high front end hardtail, shortwheelbase to get around that corner at the bottom. Doable.
Main lift is broken at work so have to wait for the 1 small passenger one which if it has >2 people in I’ll have to wait for it to come back, soooooooo tempting to ride down the 8 flights of (much easier than yours) stairs.Posted 7 years agochugg08Subscriber
Sounds daft, but Johnson Baby Wipes. Found out after my wee one decided to do handprints on the wall and carpet after playing with my chain. I paniced and grabbed the first “cleaning” product I could find…it worked well.
It also removes small spillages of red wine from cream carpets.Posted 7 years agoskiMember
Baby wipes are worth a go, but might also take the paint off too, so go easy with them.
Speaking from experience(4 flights of office stairs here and loads of tyre scuffs) took me months to do them dab free, even longer to clear the marks of all the walls, great fun though.
Tell your boss to have a go if he kicks off 😉Posted 7 years ago
The marks now look as though they have been there for years, rather than brand new black marks! 😆
I tried some sugar and soap, not sugar soap, it didn’t work. Also tried Cilit Bang, which seemed to melt the paint a bit, but left the marks more grey than black.
Boss is away end of June, so I might be able to film it. 😉

Had to swing the rear wheel round, which hit the wall making tyre marks.
