Bloody Hell! I can’t believe it worked! Madame had drawn on not 1 but 5 of our painted walls with not just any old crayon, but a heavy duty extra greasy whiteboard one! I tried baby wipes but they didn’t work. A few people on twitter suggested using WD 40.
I did think they were insane but tried it and it came off in a breeze, very little elbow grease required. Sprayed a bit on, wiped, then sprayed a bit more if it didn’t come off. I had all the walls clean in less than 10 minutes! However, I’m a bit stoned from the fumes!
Please note: It didn’t change the colour of the walls. The photos were take on different days.

Make sure Madame doesn’t smoke in there for a bit
I’ll make sure she smokes outback tonight! ;-)
Good to know! Bubble is a horror for drawing on walls and doors. Luckily, he *usually* does it with chalk.
Unfortunately, it doesn’t work with felt tips or paint! I did try!
Very cool trick, will remember that… how about blutack?? thats a bugger to get off and paint over
No idea about blue tack but I know a school that wasn’t allowed to use it and used toothepaste instead????
Wow! I’d never have thought of that, and I think you’re brave for testing it. I shall tuck that gem away until I need it in the future :)
There is a fine line between bravery and stupidity! ;-)
Ooh, ooh, ooh…. Wonder if we have any in the basement. If not, will have to go buy some tomorrow. In my rearranging of the living room I uncovered what was Rosemary’s den and there is a little corner with a large amount of crayon on. Shall definitely try it out, because I was thinking repainting was the only solution and we painted 9 years ago so no way would we get the same colour so would have to do the whole room. Or do a mini floral mural in that corner. Or something. Your solution sounds much easier.
Good luck and let me know how you get on!
Ooh, you didn’t know of the magic power of WD-40? It can do just about *anything*.
Particularly good at removing sticker residue.
I had no idea!
Hadn’t thought about WD40 but going to give that a go… Bigger has rediscovered drawing on walls
