My two kids got a hold of my permanent marker and scribbled all over their bedroom walls. For a month now, I've been trying everything I can think of to remove it and nothing seems to do the trick. I've tried Totally Awesome, power spray, nail polish remover, rubbing alcohol, Magic Eraser, hair spray, toothpaste, and many others! Please help me.

Sunlight dish soap and a scrubbing pad, lots of elbow grease.. it works but it's time consuming

Try wd40, then clean the wall after with warm water and soap. Spray wd40 on wall with a rag under to prevent dripping. It will take a few applications and cleaning depending on the size of the art.

Use a dry erase marker and trace the writing on the walls. It should come right off!

I have a 4 year old who loves to draw. I read on here that hand sanitizer works to take permanent markers off walls. It sure did, along with a layer of paint, but it did the job. I also tried rubbing alcohol. It didn't do anything.

The next best thing I used for my walls was SOS pads. They leave a blue tinge on the wall after cleaning but they work. It may take a few times to rinse the wall but it worked oh-so-well for me.

I hope it does for other people having the same issue with a small artist.

I read several posts about removing Sharpie marker off walls and doors and none of the solutions worked for me, so I began experimenting. I found that spraying Bath and Body Works Body Splash on a cotton ball and gently rubbing the mark will remove it with ease. Just be careful, because too much rubbing may remove the paint as well.

Recently my daughter got hold of a permanent marker and decided to decorate her room. I tried gumption on it and it removed it, but be careful not to scrub to hard or you will remove the paint. Scrub softly. (02/19/2011)

To remove marker from a wall, use rubbing alcohol on a cotton ball. Don't rub too hard and it should come off.

I have gotten permanent marker off using hand sanitizer. There is also a product sold at Dollar General called "Totally Awesome" that will remove the marker. This product works like nothing I have ever tried. It cleans anything. Hope this helps. (05/01/2010)

My renter's little boy wrote with permanent marker all over the walls. It has been about a month and I'm now finding out about it. Is there something extremely good I can use to get it off?
