How to remove permanent marker from walls

If you have kids, chances are your walls are covered with their sharpie arts. If they choose to play with permanent marker, you are pretty much stuck tithe the wall art, until the next house painting. Well, why not try this simple tutorial to remove the permanent marker from your wall.
For this project you will need:
• Rubbing alcohol
• Washcloth
• Bowl
• Water
• Sponge with an abrasive side

To erase the „art“project as effective as possible, you must react quickly. When the permanent marker is still wet, you can easily fix the damage.

When starting off, the first thing I advise you to do is dip a small piece of cloth into alcohol ant try rubbing a small scrabbled piece. In this way you will see how the scrabble reacts on this technique, and you can avoid smiling and damaging the surface.
I recommend you to scrub carefully and slowly to avoid additional damage to the surface, and this way you can avoid peeling the paint together with the ink.
Dip the cloth into a rubbing alchohol and in slow motions gently start wiping the „painting“. Prepare a bowl of water and place it next to you. Dip the abrasive part of the sponge into the water and very gently scrub the permanent marker ink off the surface. I advise you to do this with small cyclic motions.

Once you have „scratched off“ those hard core first base permanent inks, pour some rubbing alcohol onto a smooth part of the sponge and repeat the process until you have cleaned the surface. That part will probably seem like it is smudged, but once it is all dried out, you will make sure how this is a very effective trick to know, and chances are you are going to have to repeat the process every now and then when your little artist sees the opportunity to show its artistic side.
