Removing Blu Tack can sometimes be a little more complicated than simply peeling it off. If the paint on your walls is too thin, it may peel off with the Blu Tack, and if the wall surface is at all porous, oils from the adhesive can seep into it. Careful cleaning can generally take care of these stains and leave the walls unblemished.
