Wall prep - how to cover red chalk lines


I don't have BIN and am currently without a car. But I DO have brake cleaner and thought I'd give it a try. It was easy, not "all that trouble."

I know this is old. I posted it for the benefit of others. The internet is full of people looking for something to remove red chalk lines from other surfaces you wouldn't paint/prime with BIN. I know this is specific to walls, but this is the only forum I was already registered to post on, so it was the easiest. It was also the first hit from a Google search for removing red chalk, so it seemed the best way to reach other searchers with a broad range of needs to remove red chalk in the future.

It's pretty safe to say, if they don't sell it at the paint store then it probably shouldn't go on the wall before the paint.
