Manure Stains!!

They are on the walls x.x I can't get them off! Any suggestions? I've heard of dilluted bleach, but what does it look like when you do it? How do you apply it? I want the stains gone ... I have tried scrubbing at them, but that just takes the poo off, but the stains are still there. Help?

Assuming you're talking about wood being stained by poop, here's a cheap and easy solution- hydrogen peroxide.
Readily available in mass quantities, cheaply, it should do what you want.
Poo is essentially full of undigested proteins, which are staining the wood, presumably leaching into the fibers of the wood.
Scrub the affected areas with peroxide and a scrubbie brush. It will bleach out most species of wood, especially wood high in tannins, like oak.
Then, scrub the remaining areas of wall lightly to blend in the dolor disparity.

I looked at the web site, and didn't see anything I thought would help x.x Plus, I was more looking for household remedies. Thank you for your post though :o)
