How do you remove marker from the walls?

My son drew circles on the wall in his bedroom with marker, I've tried, 409, several other household cleaners and nothing works. I'd love to get it off and I don't want to have to repaint. Any tips would be great.

  • Amway Global's LOC - liquid organic cleaner. It is wonderful for almost any kind of stain and does not have any products in it that can harm you.
