Is there anyway to get permanent marker off walls?

I left my son unattended for about 2 minnute while I was taking Christmas decorations downstairs, and he wrote all over his bedroom walls and door. I tried using a mr. clean magic eraser and it worked a little bit but won't get it off completely.

  • Mr. Clean Magic Eraser gets Sharpie Marker off the walls. That is what I used when my son drew all over the walls with one.
