  • rewash the clothes in:
    Hot Water
    regular amount of detergent (the website said to double, but I didn’t)
    1/2 cup borax
    1/2 cup baking soda
    1/2 cup spray and wash or shout or something similar
    generous squirt of Dawn

    will be sudsy but should rinse fine.

    a magic eraser should remove it from inside the dryer

  • Murphy's Oil Soap. Rub a dab on each spot, let sit for an hour and then wash in HOT water. That should get it all out, if there are residual stains, repeat.

  • crayon is just colored wax. place a paper towel under and over the crayon marks place a paper bag under and over that. then take a dry iron and set it to cotton. the heet will melt the crayon and the paper towel will soak it up
