Wonderful DS1 hmm was left alone with black crayon angry. Room decorated with beautiful cream textured wallpaper....

Cheap plasticky white bread, squashed up and rubbed over patiently.

Or, WD40 but do try on inconspicuous bit first!

Good luck.

I believe that the blood of whoever left him alone with the crayon and the wallpaper can be very effective...

I removed ds2's efforts with a normal eraser the other week.

I used toothpaste once, not sure about your posh walls though!

I used a Magic Eraser on painted walls and it worked brilliantly. I'm not sure whether it would be ok on textured wallpaper though.

ordinary rubber (are they called erasers these days?) That's what we've used on our light walls and works perfectly.

check out the crayola website. I believe they have a stain remover guide.

Try:

Baby wipes

Or pencil eraser

Lastly WD40 removes crayon from painted walls and radiators but not 100% about wallpaper.

I saw on kim and aggy they use either bread or the cheap white toothpaste you can get has worked for me in the past.
