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
  • Soap
  • WD-40
  • Warm water
  • Cotton swab


  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. Then, rinse the soap off with a cloth dabbed in warm water.
  4. 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.
  5. 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.
