  • Magic Eraser. It is a little spongie thing that you rub on the marks and they come off.

  • BTW... never use one on a person, for like when a kid get the permanent marker. It will rub off the skin.

  • If you have some bakeing soda,just wet a clean cloth and dab it in some of the bakeing soda. It is abrasive but gentle enough not remove the paint.

  • tha magic eraser like the PP stated. read the package first if the walls were painted with a gloss or high gloss paint it may remove the glossy finish. Have you googled a remedy yet?? I would try the pencil eraser trick and the baking soda before running out to the store for mr clean eraser. since most people already have those items at home...G/L

  • pencil eraser did not remove paint from my walls or the wall paper or the finished wood...it did by the way remove non permanent marker also...if there are groove like designes in the wallpaper that was colored on in either one it just takes a little extra scubbing to get into the grooves which is best done by using one of those attatchable pencil erasers with the narrow end on it...
