  • Try ironing it out, same as you would candle wax. Put the item between 2 paper bags and heat with an iron on low heat. The wax should re-melt and the paper bag will absorb it.

  • Been there, done that with red & yellow. PineSol and a toothbrush did the trick for me.

  • I don't have a paper bag. Could i use an old towel? Would it work?

  • Well I know how to get wax of the crayon out, but not the color.

    With wax...all you have to do is take some paper towel and a hot iron. You put the paper towel on top of the wax then iron the top of the transfers the wax. Good luck !
