    No other option than chalk paint that I can think about. You can get it in spray can or brush on can. They must have used something other than chalk to make original message.

    This happened to us and we had to repaint them with chalk paint (the paint that you can write on with chalk). Worked better than anything we tried to clean them with.

    There are items marketed as "magic erasers," which are often white sponges used to remove wall marks. These low-cost micro-scrubbers are meant to get rid of tough stains, such as chalk pen remnants. Although the product may be reused several times, it is not suitable for individuals with sensitive skin.
