Covering nail holes

Hi all,

I'm moving out of my apartment and wanted to cover the nail holes in my walls before the inspection.
I was wondering where I can find spackle, putty knife etc.? Do you think I could find them in big supermarkets eg Migros?

Many thanks for your help

K

Talcum powder and a little water to make a paste.

Re: Covering nail holes

To get the right colour to match your walls, be sure to buy the right filler. One is bright white, one is the match to the white paint used in many apartments. I don't know about Migros but both types are sold at Coop Bau and Hobby.

A small "spachtel" will be useful as well.

There is quick drying filler and the regular. Both work well.

The trick is to fill the hole and avoid getting filler on the wall around the holes.

Re: Covering nail holes

I am not sure if this was implied, but my walls are not flat, they are a sort of matted concrete looking material so the wall has a rough surface and sheds dust when you bump against it. Is there any specific technique to getting these to look right when you remove nails? Do I use the same materials suggested above? ( not gum)
