  • I think it's lysol tub and tile cleaner. When my now ten yr old was just a little guy he found a sharpie marker and drew all over my friends living room wall(my budding artist) I was mortified but she didn't panic. She took out that can of tile cleaner and voila like magic it came right off with a little elbow grease. I've also heard of the magic eraser(mr clean i think?) is suppose to work. Oxiclean might work too.

    Good luck! :)

  • magic eraser- be careful on flat paint, it will take it right off! the knock off brands are NOT the same.

    i use these things religiously in the house! they also work to make plastic things (like lawn furniture look brand spanking new! oh, and textured appliances, yeah, gets all the gunk off without chemicals.
