  • Put a rag on top of it, and blow the blow dryer across it. It should melt the crayon and the rag should lift it up. Don't rub it though just pat it. If you rub it it will just spread the crayon around.

  • You can try ironing a towl over the area, don't rub, just blot to get it out.

  • You can take an ice cube and put it on top and it might get it out. I also use a little of my SA8 bleach. It is mild and it works.
