  • You could try Magic Eraser. Kerosene works to clean things, too. (For the hard surfaces!)


    For the clothes, I don't know of anything that takes out nail polish and I'm a former nail technician. As for the crayon and marker...maybe try hairspray and wash in cold water.

  • lemon juice and rubbing alcohol works on crayons on walls. i havent figured out the marker or finger nail polish out yet and dont know about clothes, my mother in law swears by grease lighting to get stains out of clothes

  • go to the auto section at your local walmart, kmart, target, whatever. Look for the yellow can. Its called Tuff Stuff I believe. It is marketed for cleaning auto interiors but works on everything. I have used it to get marker off of walls and wood furniture, without stripping away any varnish. Works AWESOME on tough messes in the kitchen too. Haven't had any experiences with nail polish,I have all boys, but its worth a shot. Its pretty cheap too. Less than $2 here.

  • Magic Eraser is the best invention ever...it works on permanent marker, crayons, everything!! It even worked on my suede couch and didn't hurt it.

  • Marker try rubbing alcohol or fingernail polish remover, fingernail polish try fingernail polish remover, and for crayons I have heard that if you roll a piece of plain white bread into a ball and rub it on the crayon on the walls it comes off. Have not tried it yet though.
