    Mr Clean Magic Eraser baby (also mr clean imposter) this will get rid of it paint won't stick to wax and sometimes the light colors fail to cover marker. Blue is best for hide. Start lightly because so of the paint may rub off just making it a tad dull but doesn't stick out like that orange crayon does.
    PS if you have children why would you ever buy flat paint?? Its generally unwashable.

    We love those Mr Clean erasers (the imposters, of course)! We've gotten such great deals on used toys and furniture that sellers thought were worthless due to color/marker/pen markings all over the stuff.

    We have flat paint throughout most of our house (I'm a matte kind of gal), and haven't had any trouble with the Mr Clean erasers damaging the paint - but, I'm sure if we were scrubbing the walls down on a weekly basis there would be a problem. We went with cheaper flat paint the last time we repainted (when the girls were two) since we figured we'd be doing some serious repainting as the girls aged.
