How to Clean Crayon From a Wall


What is it about toddlers and crayons and walls? Instead of sharing those colorful thoughts of yours with the doodling toddler, do something really off-the-wall: Get little Sam or Susie to help you make the colorful wax disappear.

Things You'll Need

  • Sponge
  • Towel
  • White Cloth
  • Baking Soda
  • Plastic Spoon Or Spatula
  • Multipurpose Lubricating Oil
  • Gently scrape away the wax with a plastic spoon or spatula.

  • Sprinkle baking soda on a damp white cloth.

  • Give the cloth to one of your tots and have him rub the marks off.

  • Dampen a sponge for the other one and have her rinse clean the residue.

  • Really stubborn marks may require Mom or Dad to spray on a very grown-up product: WD-40 or other multipurpose lubricating oil.

  • Wipe the wall clean with a damp towel.

Tips & Warnings

  • Buy washable crayons.
  • Pencil marks can be removed with an artist's gum eraser (available at most art supply stores).
