  • I had the same problem, and I never found a way to get the stains out.
    If you find a way to get your stains out, please let the rest of us know how you did it.

  • I use washable crayons. They say washable on the box and sure enough with some soap and water they wash off everything...including clothes. Also try a little Oxy clean. I have found that gets out everything as well from chocolate milk to spaghetti sauce.

  • Try goo gone...there is also something else, I cannot remember the name of it for the life of me, but I got it at Wal the aisle with the goo gone...It worked after I dried my clothes in a laundry mat dryer that had a green crayon in it! Good Luck!

  • in the laundry isle. there are those little yellow bottles from Carbona, they are called stain devils. each bottle treats a different kind of stain. they have one for ink, one for greese, wine, grass, blood....etc. and they have one for crayons.
    my son put a red crayon in the DRYER a few years back. if it were not for that CARBONA, all my husband's dress shirts would have been ruined.
    on the upside. the other garments ( like the house dresses for my daughter, I didn't treat with the stain devil. but yet. the stains came out with continuous washings. go figure.
    best of luck. keep us posted.
