Few things are as difficult to remove from the wall as permanent marker. But when junior marks up your foyer with sharpies, don’t fear; it can be remedied.

Here are some things you’ll likely find around the house that you can use to remove the so called permanent marks from the wall.

    Indoor house paint on your carpet…..use scissors,a knife or something sharp to separate the carpet. Use wd-40 let sit for about 5 or so minutes. Scrub good with a white towel. You can also use straight laundry detergent to get out what wd-40 doesn’t. Apply detergent directly to the spot, let soak, then use a clean towel and water to get it up. Hope this helps someone.
