Magic markers, no matter how useful they are, have a nasty tendency of creating a mess just about everywhere. When children get a hold of them this tendency can be expected to become a certainty. One of the most common places that a magic marker mess can be found is on the walls of your home or office. While it can often be a little difficult to remove magic markers from regular painted walls, if you happen to have a plaster wall of some kind, the job can easily seem more difficult. That is, unless you use one of these methods to help you in removing magic markers from plaster.
There is one thing to realize about removing magic markers from plaster. Whether you can remove the mess or not will depend on whether the mess is simply a "surface" marking, or if the marker dye has actually "penetrated and imbedded" itself into the plaster. Surface making can, sometimes, be removed. Usually you will have to repaint the afflicted area after words to simply cover up the effects of cleaning, unless you are very lucky that is. However, if the magic marker has actually penetrated the plaster, then you will actually have to remove the afflicted plaster itself. This can usually be done by using a very fine type of sandpaper, and sanding the afflicted plaster away.
