DS1 has gone through the house with a biro or 2 just lately and has drawn over our wooden doors and on some walls.
Walls are easily sorted, I can paint them, but how on earth do I get biro off of the doors?
We rent our house so we have to be careful not to ruin the doors completely.
Any hints, tips or advice greatly recieved.

really? I was hoping to avoid sandpaper if I could.
DS1 is a real pain, no matter how hard I try to hide pens, he always finds a rouge one and heads start to the doors

I mean straight, not start

What sort of wood are the doors made of - is it varnished, or waxed, or painted in any way? Or just completely bare wood?

bare light wood, possibly pine?

You could try some of these (but test in an inconspicuous area first).
