Agree, Mr. Clean Magic Eraser is awesome for solid surfaces, and hairspray is great for soft surfaces like clothing.

Try Mr Clean's magic erasers. It works good on pen, not sure about permanent marker

I was able to get permanent marker off of my walls by using a Mr.Clean Magic Eraser. They work miracles on all surfaces!! I now keep them in my house at all times to use to clean my shower doors, stove top, fridge door handle and more.. :)

Good luck. :)

Magic eraser (a white foam like sponge) will get this off with no trouble

I know that hairspray gets pen out of other materials. It's worth a shot to try it on the walls :)
