Removing Unwanted Wall Art
If you’re raising a “little artist” who sees walls as canvas, these tips may come in handy!
Wd-40 is supposed to be great for removing stains, such as markers, on walls. Spray it on and wipe the ink…or crayon away. You could even try letting it sit on the marks for a few minutes before wiping.
I keep reading about the awesome power of toothpaste in removing stains, but have yet to try it. Make sure it’s the regular white paste kind; gel will only make a bigger mess. Put some on and old toothbrush and scrub the “artwork” away.
Hairspray is a great way to remove ink, not so sure about crayon. I’ve been fortunate enough that my son has never been that interested in his crayons and hasn’t “decorated” his bedroom walls. Spray the hairspray on and wipe with a soft clean cloth.
Mr. Clean Magic Erasers are perfect for this task. Just be careful, I’ve heard that sometimes they can take the paint off walls.
