So my 2 lil ones got those sharpie markers in some spots here & there & im trying to fig out the best way to get it off w/o an entire day of scrubbing (not that i have a prob w cleaning but its hard to make kids clean up their own mess when it takes all day to do it), w o too much expense im on a major budget.
So the spots r the white kitchen cabinet, the white fridge, the sink & a bit of pen on the wall.
Any helpful ideas please feel free to send my way. Thank u

Baby wipes have been known to clean marks like that off of things.

Pen on the wall, fairly easy.  Get yourself a Mr. Clean Magic Eraser.  That will take care of any marks on the wall.  Heck, give it a shot on the sharpie marks on the otgher things.  I don't know if ti will work or not.....but its pretty good at these kinds of messes.

try rubbing alcohol or hair spray. also finger nail polish remover.. but test small unseen spot first so no discoloring.

This is gonna sound crazy, but bear with me. . . .if you take a dry erase marker and go over the marks the cuties left on cabinets and such it will take the permenant marker off. The alcohol in the dry erase markers breaks down the permenant ones. I promise it works, I have had the same thing happen to me!!

If its on harder surfaces, pink erasers work wonders! I use to draw all over stuff when I was in school w sharpies and it works
