My son recently glued several of his favorite items (i.e., posters, cutouts of magazines, little mini baseball helmets) ALL OVER his bedroom wall with a HOT GLUE GUN!!!!! I am renting an apartment, and need to move at the first of the month. When I try to remove the glue, the paint comes w/ it exposing the brown paper-like substance beneath. Can ANYONE offer me any suggestions of how I might get this glue off the walls with as little damage as possible?

Dear Denamay,
What will Kids do next? I do have the answer to your problem. Get out your iron ( Pressing) and wet a dishtowel. Place the dishtowel over the offending glue and heat it for just a little bit. The glue will pull right off. You will have to touch up the paint though. It will not ruin the drywall.
