How do you remove crayon from the walls?

My son found a non washable crayon, black of course, and wrote all over the walls!

  • Some good old tooth paste and water... be careful not to scrub to hard though... use an old sock the inside is soft and does a good job. No need to spend money on a magic eraser when you can use something that is always in the home. Trust me it works thats what i used and it was a suggestion by another cafemom mother to me.

  • You might try a Mr. Clean Magic Eraser..............I got most of the crayon off of my wall with one. However, my friend used one of these on her wall, that had a special type of painting technique applied, and it altered the appearance. So just be careful.

  • Go get some Goo Gone. It should take the Crayon off without hurting the paint.

  • i fourth the magic eraser..but be careful it dont take the paint off your walls. you may also want to try a piece of brown paper bag and a hairdryer..but thats a little trickier..works but is awkward to do lol...i would stick to the m.e. but again be careful
