    Default Easiest way to get pencil and pen off walls

    And cheap too, mix a watery paste of bicarb and water, then rub it over the mark with a micro fibre cloth...
    Not sure if any kind of cloth will work, I just always use micro fibre..
    Seriously, couple of rubs and it's gone

    That works most of the time for me too or I use gumption but my little darlings recently gouged the paint with Biro so now I have to spak fill and paint.
    Any ideas how to get crayon off brickwork and mortar and poster paint too, I have tried goofoff and it did nothing I am worried I am going to have to get a bricky out to fix it

    If the bricks are outside, pressure clean them or let it wear off.

    Baby wipes clean paint as well.

    Crayon should melt with heat. Do you have a hand held steamer or hair dryer? Worth a try. Even scrub with white vinegar.. I dont have brick, so I've never had to try and clean

    I've used a rubber eraser to get pencil marks off the walls.

    Crayon is one of the easiest things to remove from walls. Just spray with some cooking spray oil. Leave for a minute or 2. Wipe of with a paper towel. Then remove any excess oil with a damp cloth.
