My Kids Drew On The Walls!

by Brianne Nickerson - September 30, 2017

What’s that box of white things under the sink? Mr. Clean’s Magic Eraser things. Yes! That will work! If we had them in stock. Empty box with a post-it note that says “put on grocery list”. AHHHHH! The internet is my only hope.

Use a sponge with an abrasive side. Dampen the sponge and place a small pile of baking soda on it. Place the sponge against the affected wall area and gently rub in a circular motion. You will probably need to rinse and repeat depending upon how dramatic the line and the color. This is probably why people find that toothpaste also works – toothpaste contains a large amount of baking soda! Let the toothpaste sit for 5-10 minutes. Wipe away the toothpaste with a damp cloth. The mark should be gone.

Isopropyl and WD-40 are recommended as well, but in my mind this just seems like it will cause a problem With it being a basement room, there aren’t any windows to vent out the harmful fumes. Also, hairspray was recommended, but I’m not sure which hairspray is the expensive one, so I didn’t take the risk.

Luckily, we did have baking soda and toothpaste. This does work. There’s a video I watched on it too. Baking soda video. I should have made my life easy and made a call to Maid in Hoboken to take care of urgent issue!

Then there were the markers:

I missed part of the game, but that’s why they invented the dvr. The crisis has been averted. And of course the kids ratted me out. Can’t win ‘em all. If you are in this situation my solution is this.

STEP 1:  Breathe.

STEP 2:  Make sure you hit record on the dvr.

STEP 3:  Do all the cleaning stuff I said above.

STEP 4:  Wait for your wife to come home.

STEP 5:  Hide and drink a beer.

Hope this helps. And if you see that pink elephant, let him know I have some words for him.
