  • Magic Erasers are the best and easiest. If you don't like that, I used Goo Gone to get Sharpie markings off of my office wall. (DD came in for a visit.)

  • I JUST saw this on How Clean Is Your House? on BBC... Hairspray takes crayons right off of walls.. seriously lol.

    They said to NOT use it on wallpaper though.
