  • Honestly i use dish liquid and water, but not a lot! I use that Dawn with bleach and just rub it until it goes away. but not too hard or the paint will start to fade... Good Luck! :)

  • Mr. Clean Magic Eraser is the only thing I've found that will completely take off crayon but leave the paint.

  • I agree with the magic eraser but something a little more natural is toothpaste (the old fashioned past kind.) I use crest and it makes things smell good too.

  • Magic Eraser!!!!

    And repaint with at least a satin finish to make it easier to clean the next time. Flat paint is the worst to try to clean with anything!!! LOL

  • Magic Eraser....but I suggest that maybe you put crayons and markers out of your child's reach when you're not watching them...
