I wish the couple who used to live in my place had known how to do this properly. I still continue to get some of their mail, and we're talking insurance bills, credit card bills, etc!!

I went around my apartment trying to clean up spots using a magic eraser. My walls are a light brown color. The spots cleaned up fine, but it always seems to leave a water stain on the paint. Is there any way to clean painted walls like this and avoid this water spot situation? Even if I tried to buff it dry lightly with a towel I could still see a water mark.

I have a similar issue in my bedroom, two walls have a single off-center window. One is very off-center and I've worked around it with furniture placement. The other is the wall where my headboard is placed in front of the window, but the window is annoyingly just SLIGHTLY off-center, as in one or two inches or so to one side. I've been toying with hanging panels across the whole wall never to be opened (which might also help with noise from the compressor right outside the room too), which would also let the bed be moved to the true center of the wall - right now it sits so it's centered with the window.
