Hi - I have a hallway just painted in Little Greene absolute Matt but it seems to be marking very easily. Any suggestions as to best way to clean marks off?

No. This is the problem. The finish is matt because it is a very fine abrasive surface hence it marks easily. If you rub it off it'll go shiny.

Am afraid you've probably used the wrong paint for a hallway that get's knocks and scrapes. You can get harder wearing matt paint finishes that would be easier to clean off and not mark as quick in the first place.
If it's just been painted, then quick touch-ups over the marks with more paint is probably the easiest solution.

Thanks for the responses. Yep think you are right - should have gone with their Intelligent Matt which looks like it's washable. Guess I could put a coat of that on top - see any issues with that?
