Finding out your kid marked the walls with a sharpie is such a bad feeling to be honest. You don’t know whether to be mad, to try to clean it off immediately or to cry silently in the corner.
Well, I am here to tell you that removing a sharpie from a painted wall is not hard at all! In fact, it’s quite easy. There are a few cleaning hacks you can follow in order to remove the marks without any issues!
And not, my hacks don’t require paint. As I said we will clean the marks off the wall, not paint the wall!
- Use Sunscreen
This cleaning hack is honestly a miracle. It’s the easiest way to remove sharpie marks!
Simply spray your sunscreen directly on the stain and wipe with a cloth in a circular motion.
- Use Toothpaste
A weird hack – I know, but it seems to work. Spread white toothpaste on the stain, leave for 10 minutes, then scrub with a cloth.
– Use Baking Soda
Dampen the abrasive side of a sponge in water, sprinkle some baking soda on it, and start rubbing the affected area using a circular motion.
– Use Nail Polish Remover, Hand Sanitizer, or Rubbing Alcohol
Just like the sunscreen method, this works amazing and I recommend you try it out but don’t forget to wear gloves!
