I have to agree on the toothpaste part - really, really cheap and it fills those tiny holes well. Spackle is great but it can leave tell-tale signs that the landlord can spot. It's hard to manage spackle in the tiny holes. It will leave a trace amount and you will have to touch up the paint.

AND don't worry about the minty smell - you're moving out anyway and it will just make the new tenant look around for the minty air freshener. Right?

Good luck! I've fooled many a landlord especially in my shitty college apartment.  INCLUDING using shelf paper to carefully cover a gigantic hole in the drywall where my college boyfriend and friend went flying drunkenly through the wall (it was a converted attic space with cheap drywall partitions). We stretched the shelf paper over the hole and then carefully painted over it with a matte paint to hide the shiny part. It worked well enough to get my security deposit back but the first time a future tenant leaned against that wall they would have had a shock!  YIKES!


Back from hiatus and trying not to just lurk.

I find white-out to be pretty effective for small holes. Wink
