  • Even though they are a lil pricey... Magic Eraser! Wal Mart brand works just as well too! It will need a lil elbow grease too, but it will come off!! My kids did it with a black one... takes a lil bit but it'll work!!

  • Brake fluid, I swear! Just make sure the kids aren't around and open a window because of fumes.

  • try fingernail polish remover. Be careful with any of these remdedies since they'll probably take the paint off the wall too.
