    If you like to save some money go and try a this product. Mr. Clean's Magic eraser. I have used them religiously almost on cleaning apartment walls that were scuffed up and was trying to avoid repainting them. That and hot water. Believe it or not I was able to use the eraser and plain water to clean a wall that had scuff marks and shoe prints from a teenagers boot. Also depending on the severety of the wall there is a product called LA's Totally Awesome place about a cap full of it in your water and it will help as well. If there is a Dollar General in your home town they may carry it. A gallon of it in my home town is $3.00 and it last a while.

    I have also tried using Mr. Clean's Magic Eraser. I agree with Willow1980 that it works good on scuff marks and dirt. For stubborn stains, it definitely works to help "erase" the dirt. However, you have to be careful not to overuse the Magic Eraser on certain surfaces so it doesn't remove the shine or any coating.

    The other thing I have tried is to steam clean certain areas of the wall, using my Shark Deluxe Portable Steam Pocket. It works pretty well.

    Other than that, for light dusting, a duster works well for light cleaning.
