its why i do all the halls in silk finish paint it seems to take the hammer better and we have reasonably wide halls which helps. Stayed in a place this weekend past and all the walls were skuffed from top to bottom but it was quite narrow think they should have been a bit more on top of it mind.

When one of my kids comes to visit is when repairs and touch-ups get done. Last week the walls above the shower stalls got touched up where moving shower curtain rods moved paint with them. She found cracks in the plaster and I actually found a door knob ding and she took care of all when she finished mounting my TV.

Next time she comes for a week I might get a new kitchen floor.....

A couple years ago I found this great little gadget. google Rubbermaid Paint Buddy (for some reason I can't get the link to work)

I keep a couple of them filled with the different color paints and when I see a ding or scuff, I just paint over it. The paint that's stored in the paint buddy doesn't dry out, so it's there when you need it!

I keep meaning to get a couple of those. It looked like the neatest idea (in a variety of ways) so I'm glad to know it really works.

works great. You just have to rinse off the sponge roller, snap the cap back on and voila!

I've got another gadget I'm testing out right now. Give me a few more days and I'll post whether it's as good as I think it is. It's a reusable lint roller. It's sticky, then you just rinse it off with water and all the stuff that stuck on it falls off. As soon as it dries, it's sticky again. So far so good!

I would do this more often except I do not want the next guest complaining they got paint on their clothing, or mentioning paint smells. So, I run around in the winter touching up and cleaning scuff marks.

Look for the new odorless asthma & allergy friendly paints like Valspar (available at Lowes).

I have to use up what I have first or I have to find a place to get rid of it. Easier to put it on the walls than find somewhere that takes used paint.

 This is our third year and the busiest. The walls are taking a beating. Luggage dents and who knows what. Most are quite small but I notice them.

Often. We touch up around the house as often as we can, outside of the crazy summer months.
