cleaning watermarks from eggshell latex paint by bathroom sink.

Ya know those watermarks that splatter on the walls next to the sink? How do I clean them off? After I clean them off, how do I prep the walls so that it stops happening? Should I cover the whole wall with a clear poly-gly-coat to make it water resistant? I did a lovely 12" horizontal stripe in the powder room, but the dripping water marks look awful. Thanks for any input.

Depending on the type of paint, a mild detergent and warm water are the best cleaning solution. If that doesn't take it off, then its probably stained.

To protect the walls you could use a water-based poly, in gloss, satin, or matte finish.

You should use a semi gloss paint in a bathroom or anywhere that moisture on the surface is an issue. The water will wipe right off.
If you go to the trouble of another coat I would just go over it with semi gloss
