Ink on wall

Hi everyone. Have any of you successfully cleaned a ballpoint pen ink mark off an inside wall of the trailer? Thanks. Jan from Seattle

Spot check an area first but WD40 is supposed to remove ink

Rubbing alcohol works -- but use a small amount on a cotton ball or a q-tip.

Going back to the day of my white nursing uniform, we used hair spray to get ink out.

Only problem I've had with Magic Eraser is that it works so well that it leaves a clean spot. Then you have to do all the rest.

They're great, but then they disintegrate so fast! Wish they lasted longer.

Magic Erasers will take the latex paint off a wall. Fortunately there's none of that inside an Escape.

They also work well on stubborn stains on the outside shell.

Goo Gone perhaps. Manufacturer says it is not petroleum based. You could put a small ink mark in an out of the way place and try different products.
