I have 3 children also, i have done the trick of making them wash the wall and it really makes them not draw on it again, my faviote is Fantastic, it works great on the walls for removing crayons and markers, also my hubby has used a steel wool when dtger got perment marker amd draw on all our white applances,ie, washer, stand up freezer. looks like some great ideas, definately let us know which one you used.

I have used Greased Lightning and Bartender's Friend in addition to some of the others listed to remove marker/pen marks from walls. I also have a natural finish wood table top that got some stray "Blo-pen" sprays on it...used a simple solution of bleach and water (about 1 part bleach to 2 parts water); let it sit a few minutes and wiped clean.

Preliminary Results

Thank you for all the great suggestions. Keep in mind, some of this stuff has been there for a while - now that I'm home FT I have time to deal with the stuff.

Here is what I've tried so far:
Hairspray - didn't work
Windex - didn't work
Milk - didn't work
Orange Glo - didn't work
Go-Gone - WORKED on everything but the marker on the floor.

I'm going to try a few more of the suggestions - if anything works I'll leave a note. Otherwise, I'm buying an area rug.

Try Goof-Off or Ooops! Both remove latex paint from wood, they're worth a shot since they are good for many other things around the house.
Have you tried a paste of baking soda and water? There is a Shaklee Cherry pit paste that may work or a polish sold on QVC a few years ago is the same idea---micro-fine particles to do fine scrubbing.

Good luck and keep us posted!!
