    Unfortunately Tilex (the one with Sodium Hypochlorite,
    mold and mildew") did not work (unless you define work as bleaching the wall and removing the paint). Would not recommend using Tilex to clean pyro stains off of painted walls. I am going to have to prime and paint the wall now (which I was planning on anyway so no big thing).

    On the other hand, it did turn blue paint yellow..Probably from all the bleach.

    Thanks

    Clorox Clean up is bleach and sodium hydroxide
    The Works is HCl. I clean my trays with it.
    Both would probably take the paint off but maybe the stain would come out sooner


    I'm afraid of instadeaths when some dribbles out of the tray and you have it on your walls lol


    I have some undiluted Rodinal stains that won't come out with anything

    I got a product from Formulary that I use to clean about everything and is not toxic, there is enough of that around already.

    I'm not sure if WD2D has some special "staining power" but Tilex didn't do anything for me (80% alcohol probably did the best). So primer and a few coats of paint later and its gone. I'm seriously thinking about painting my walls tan next time.
