How to clean pen and crayon marks from a wall

Anyone that has children will know how easy it is to get the walls of our house full of pen or crayon marks from our lovely kiddies. Though it could be good to let them explore their artistic self, soon you can find out how difficult it is to get rid of marks and “graffiti”.

Find on this article some advice on cleaning unwanted marks from a painted wall.

  • Marks of pencil can be cleaned just by gently erasing it with a rubber.
  • Use baby wipes to remove crayon from any wall.
  • If what you have is ballpoint pen marks or permanent marker stains, then you will need to work a little bit harder: First rub the area with a soft cloth damped on rubbing alcohol (don’t be scared if the wall turns out a different colour! keep reading); then take some soapy water and clean the area with a sponge; finish with some more rubbing alcohol in a clean cloth if needed.
