Removing Candle Soot Stain Tests

We performed four different methods for cleaning candle soot off your wall. We wanted to see what DIY method worked best for us. The last step we took was using a 1:1 ratio of soap to water, and it ruined our progress. The stain looked worse than before the first step!

After the experiment, we would recommend these common methods:

  1. Vacuum
  2. Magic Eraser
  3. Lightly using Rubbing Alcohol

Enjoy watching our experiments!

Please note: if using the rubbing alcohol method, make sure to only blot and dab, scrubbing or rubbing may cause paint removal.
