Remember that there are some paint methods that are easily damaged or be dulled by some of the methods we will mention below. For this reason, make sure you test a small area first before applying.

Where you are working with wallpaper, it is important to be very careful and ensure that you first test a small hidden part. Take note of paper discoloration and paper fiber damage. In most cases, things such as WD-40 and even solvents tend to leave stains behind, which is why you need to take your time in order to find the right solution.


1. Toothpaste

This means regular toothpaste and not gels, and it can help you remove permanent marker stains from your wall very easily. Just apply toothpaste on the area and rub the stain with it.

2. Artgum eraser

Use this eraser to rub on the scribbles gently and in circular motions. It is also fine to use a pencil eraser. If done properly, it could work great for wallpapers.

3. Baking soda

Make a paste of baking soda and then use it to rub on the marks gently. Alternatively, just sprinkle some baking soda on a wet sponge and then rub the stain with the sponge.

4. Heat

Take your hair dryer to the place that has the markings and let it heat the wax up. Use a hot soapy piece of cloth to wipe of the wax. Also, a clothes iron could do great although you need to ensure that it is set on low heat otherwise it will scorch the paint. Have some paper towels between the iron and the surface.

5. Vinegar

Have an old toothbrush soaked in white vinegar and then scrub.
