  • Some great tips being posted here !

  • You can buy those magic erasers in the Coles – they are sponges that look like little white blocks. They’re amazing and get most things off our walls.

  • spray and wipe has worked for me.

  • WD40!! No joke my husband used it on one of our daughters creations on the wall and it came off! Does stink a bit though lol

  • Sugar soap is pretty good at removing most nasties from walls.

  • A very timely question for me! My toddler has drawn on the walls with crayon and pencil! I’ve been too scared to try anything in case I made it worse. I will try these magic erasers!

  • Hairdryer and damp cloth… Use dryer to heat the crayon then gently wipe away

  • Magic erasers are fantastic. Available in the cleaning section

  • I used baking soda mixed with a bit of water to a paste. Worked for me.
    I read mayonnaise once… That didn’t work… But he dog loved it! Haha

  • Wow hairspray. Hope it works

  • Either baby wipes or those white sponges which get anything off walls.

  • I find the White Magic King Eraser Block works a treat every time with my kids and their drawings on the wall. Even works on pen marks and scuff marks on the wall.

  • The Magic Eraser should work on crayons! If not, apparently hairspray is supposed to work well. Just spray on and leave for a few minutes, then wipe off with warm soapy water. Good luck!
