  • I don't know if it works on wall paper, but honestly, use a dry erase marker over the permanent marker and it SHOULD come off

  • Use a magic eraser or if it doesn't work, Dawn dish soap with a scouring pad. I got permanent marker off my kitchen island that way.

  • I would try a dry erase marker over the permanant one. Then wipe the dry erase one off.

  • If all of the above solutions fail, try a little bit of rubbing alcohol.
