Rescue Me!

Wednesday is House Talk and let me tell you -- it's time to talk house!
I need help and I need it badly. Maybe you can help -- I have been coming up empty handed.

This is a picture of the wall in my bathroom. The marks you see is the beautiful art work of both The Boy and Baby Girl -- from last Christmas! This has been a work-in-progress that hasn't gotten very far.

Oh, I'm not upset at the kiddos. They were doing what they were supposed to be doing. You see, this is tub chalk/tub crayons. The crayons that are made out of soap that allows you to draw til your heart is content and then wash the evidence away.

Well, that's how it's supposed to work. It came off the tub just fine. But on my plastic, textured wall, it has hung on and seems to be a permanent fixture in our bathroom.

This wouldn't be much of a problem except that we live in a rental house and we're hoping to move soon -- so I need your help ASAP, STAT, PDQ , LMNOP.

This is what I've tried thus far:

Magic Eraser
Letting it sit in hopes of the hot shower water steaming it off somehow

Nothing, and I mean nothing has worked.

In the comments section, I'd love some advice. So, let's hear it...I'm ready for anything you have to offer. (Oh, and I suppose it goes without saying that it be cost-effective. Remember, I have a $400 electric bill that I have to tackle.
Oh, and this is my caulk (is that what it's called?) This looks a lot darker than it actually is...but it's still there and it's driving me nuts. So, while you're offering advice, hook a sista up.
