Kids have just decorated the wall behind me with crayons while I was sat on the pc. It's the posh Lifeproof paint so it should come off but I don't know how to start. please help anyone!

baby wipes are usually good for this sort of thing

Yep, baby wipes. I speak from experience...

rub abit of toothpaste on it,then wipe off with a damp sounds daft but it really works!!!

Thanks, wipes have left about 25% residue but have to go start dinner now so I can say I was doing that when they were drawing on the walls! Will try the toothpaste thing tomorrow too.

Not so easy on walls but sometimes you can "lift" wax with an iron and paper. Heats up and absorbs into paper. Good luck trying that on walls though .

flash magic erasers work really well !! they even get felt marks off furniture. they cost around £2 for a box with two good size erasers.
