So as my year comes to an end at uni, I've noticed a small problem...

Where I've been practising diabolo inside, I've managed to leave a fair few marks here and there from my black circus cups. So essentially, I was wondering if anyone had a good way to remove them, as they seem pretty stubborn to get off.

Cheers.

Depends on the surface really. On what type of wall/floor/ceiling material is the stain?

As Arjan says depends on the surface. I managed to remove some of the black marks on my actual diabolos with some break cleaner. Wouldn't recommend this on a wall but something like this? Maybe a watered down version?

There's a few on the painted wall, a few on the wooden skirting board and then quite a lot on the door, which is some kind of plasticy laminate thing.
Urh, what is this break cleaner you talk of?

It cleans Car and Truck brakes. Its a bit like ethanol (Evaporates on contact) and lifts dirt right off. Try this with water mixed in and it should come off.

When I got a few embarrassing marks from some plastic toys on my shiny new crystal suns I tried many things, but simple Isopropyl Alcohol worked really well.
