How do I get the Crayon Marks off my Wall

My daughter's friends were playing in the living room while I was on the phone. Then they started drawing on the wall. It took me about an hour trying to get the crayon markings off but it didn't work. I have guest coming tonight and I don't know what to do.

  • I was gonna say the same thing Jay! I love those things!! They even have febreeze scented ones too so it freshens your room at the same time. These will even get permanent marker out!

  • Okay this may sound weird, but I use baby wipes. I have scrubbed with other stuff and tried this once and seen how easily it came off my wall. It works with some marker stains as well. Not that I love to clean my wall all the time but know how easy it was to clean the last time it happened. Now I have the kids help me if their the ones that wrote on the wall. They don't do it anymore. LOL!

  • I had some draw in red crayon on my wall and figured I would try the Mr. Clean magic eraser, not only did it not work but for some reason it took the paint off of my wall is well. Now there is a white spot with red crayon. I hadn't thought to try baby wipes but I am willing to give that a try too.
