I tried the, hairspray, it did not work, I also tired the hand sanitizer, it worked really well, but it took the paint off of my wall. The best product has been the Magic Eraser, although it is taking for ever, it works without taking the paint off of my walls. (08/03/2006)

My Two year old used a sharpie all over my walls and and end table. Colgate whiting Toothpaste with scrub sponge took it right of with a little elbow grease. (08/04/2006)

WD-40 works wonderfully for removing any types of stains. No scrubbing required!! (08/11/2006)

In our dorm, we got sharpie on our wall. We tried different cleaning agents that we had but found that Colgate toothpaste worked the best with some elbow grease. Specifically it was the "pro-health" toothpaste that had the 'crystals' in it. Cleans it off orange peel walls with semigloss. (09/24/2006)

Try an old sock and some astringent. WORKS THE BEST. It usually comes off with one wipe! (06/25/2007)

Dawn Power Dissolver removes any permanent marker off anything and fast. Even clothes. It is amazing. It doesn't bleach the color or remove paint! (11/17/2007)

Thank goodness for this site and my son's preschool teacher's advice. After reading these posts I tried the hand sanitizer and it worked well but also took the paint off. Then I tried the preschool teacher's advice and used Comet powder with a wet washcloth and it really did the trick on the Sharpie marker on our walls. Hopefully making my 4 year old do much of the scrubbing will deter any repeat offenses - also suggested by his teacher:-) (02/15/2008)
