How can I get crayon drawings off of tv.

My kids got ahold of crayons and colored on the tv. The crayola is around the screen on the plastic part. (I guess it's plastic) How can I get it off? I have tried windex.

  • tube tv or flat screen? on a tube you can use a magic eraser,on a flat screen you'll need a cloth and elbow grease. Many cleaners scratch flat screens

  • Magic eraser is WONDERFUL just make sure it doesn't mess up the paint/color of the plastic part around the screen... sigh, my kids color on EVERYTHING and Magic Erasers have been my friend!
