    Flash magic eraser

    Make up a paste of Bicarbonate of Soda (the powder you use to make cakes etc) with water and GENTLY dot it on with a damp cloth/tissue. Wait a bit then carefully remove. Do a small test patch first. Bicarb is my go-to stain remover for literally all things (and it gets rid of smells as well)
    Good luck!

    They sell them in most supermarkets, I've got them from Morrisons and Tesco's before usually on the top shelf above the bathroom/kitchen cleaning products

    It can remove paint - but only if you really apply pressure - bicarb is different from soda water - it is a stain remover and deodoriser and it's free if you have some in your kitchen cupboards

    Did you throw tea bag across kitchen? oO

    ITs simple, the only way it will be removed is to remove the stained paint. The more its penetrated the more paint that needs to be removed.

    The magic eraser will help remove some of the paint. You achieve similar with a green scrubbing pad. The more you have used it will reduce its abrasiveness a fresh one might be harsh. Wet it then gently rub and see how far you get.

    A little washing up liquid in the water will help with lubrication and reduce abrasiveness. This technique is typically used in cleaning communal areas of flats etc. where you get lots of marks.

    The other thing is to try and paint the kitchen next time with kitchen or bathroom paint. Its generally less absorbant and will wipe away clean as it wont let stains penetrate the paintwork.

    bleach

    Baby wipes

    magic eraser removes everything

    Bleach

    I have a similar dilemma, the previous people painted the kitchen walks with Matt paint it shows every mark including my attempt on a slam dunk with a teabag which failed. Nothing worked, for now I've put the bin in front of it until I redecorate after Christmas. Good luck hope one of the suggestions works for you

    Put a tiny basketball hoop where you hit the wall with the teabag.

    Repaint the entire kitchen.

    Bit of gravy from Lidl should cover it.

    Methylated spirits.

    Get a tester paint pot and water it down a bit.
