Crayons and wood

Does anyone know a good way to get crayon marks off of wood? My lil 2 year old found a hidden crown and colored on their wooden kitchen. :(

  • you can also lay a paper towel over the area and run an iron over it. The crayon will melt and the paper towel will soak up the hot wax. Works for candle wax in carpet and clothing too. Just use lowest setting first.

  • Those white sponges you can buy at the supermarket work miracles on most surfaces. I think they are called Magic Erasers. They are in the cleaning isle and they are around $5.

  • I just tried some baking soda because that seems to work with everything else and it got 99% of it off. :) Better than nothin! Thanks. :)
