Getting Crayon Out of Clothes
Getting crayon out of clothes can be a nightmare but it’s not impossible. Here are a few tips and tricks to help you restore your clothes to the way they were before your art project.
Things You’ll Need
- A spoon
- Warm water
- Cotton swab
- To start, spray the crayon stain with WD-40. Rub the WD-40 onto the stain in a circular motion, let it sit for a few minutes, then blot the WD-40 away with a clean towel.
- Next, apply a small amount of liquid soap onto the stain using a spoon. Rub the soap onto the stain until it is covered and let it sit for a few minutes.
- Then, rinse the soap off with a cloth dabbed in warm water.
- If the stain is still not removed, use a cotton swab and some WD-40 to rub the stain away. Let the WD-40 sit for 5-10 minutes before bloting away with a clean cloth.
- Once you are done, rinse the area off with warm water and let it air dry.
- Be sure to test the WD-40 and soap on a small patch of fabric before applying to the stain.
- Crayon stains may take multiple treatments to remove.
- It’s important to act quickly, as crayon stains can be very difficult to remove when dry.
- Be sure to read the care labels on the garment before treating the stain.
