Having fun with Crayons is part of being a kid, but can be pretty tough to deal with as a parent from time to time. Try these steps for getting stubborn Crayon creations out of your kids room:
REMOVING CRAYON FROM WALLS
To get a beautiful work of Crayon art out of your painted walls, first try a mild detergent soap and water. This doesn't always work, but it's worth a first shot. If that does not do the trick, try WD-40 and a terrycloth towel. WD-40 is a lubricant, so it will leave a grease mark on your walls, but this can be easily removed with soap and water.
REMOVING CRAYON FROM HARD FLOORING
The second most likely place for those Crayon drawings is your floors, especially if you have tile or hard-wood flooring. The best solution for this mess is to stick with a mild detergent or soap and water. It will take some time, but if you are patient, it will come out.
REMOVING CRAYON FROM CARPET
Accidents happen, and this means Crayon can and will get into carpeting from time to time. The trick is to use a hot iron and a piece of paper, like a brown paper bag. The heat from the iron will melt the Crayon out of the carpet and it will stick to the paper. Be careful with the iron and watch your carpet closely to make sure you don't damage it.
REMOVING CRAYON FROM WOOD, METAL OR FINISHED FURNITURE
The great benefit of having quality kids furniture is that it is made to stand up against the creative and sometimes destructive nature of kids. For most finished surfaces, including wood and paint, as well as metals and stainless steel, a can of WD-40 will get that Crayon right out. Once again, you will want to follow that up with soap and water, to clean the greasy residue of the WD-40 off the furniture.
