whilst ignoring dc yesterday morning in vain attempt to stay in bed past 7am, seems they decided to crayon all over their walls and dolls house. I have no idea where crayon came from as normally under lock and key.!

Only thing we found that worked on the walls was to paint over them. Don't know about a doll's house though,

baby wipes?

WD40?(honestly! but try it in a discreet place first)

hairspray?

Tumble Dryer Sheets. Honest to god, they work like a dream.

Baby wipes are quite miraculous

Toothpaste works if walls are not expensively papered.

Lakeland do a white paste cleaner called astonish which is very good for removal of crayon from mnay surfaces (like dolls house) but do not use on posh wood as it very finely grained.
