The dreaded crayons. As soon as you see your child got a package as a gift from someone, you know that you are in trouble. It doesn’t seem to matter how many pieces of character filled papers you put in front of your child, they always prefer your perfect white walls.
After gently scraping the loose wax off your wall with a spatula, dampen a WHITE cloth and apply baking soda too it. The baking soda should get the wax to rub off the wall; you might think to have your toddler give you a hand while rinsing the walls with water to remove the residue. It may encourage them not to do it again.
Begin by putting on rubber gloves and then apply a small amount of baby oil to a white rag, you can then scrub the crayon off the wall. It should come off the wall easily, but if it doesn’t you can apply more baby oil as needed. After the stain has been fully removed, use a warm soapy sponge to clean the area up.
Dish Soap & Blow Dryer
One of the best ways to remove crayon from your walls is to use a blow dryer and some mild dish soap. You begin by blowing hot air from the blow dryer onto the wax to melt it, this will make it easier to wipe away as it drips down. After all the wax is melted and gone, use a rag with dish soap to wipe away the remaining marks. Although this is the best way to remove crayon, your toddler cannot be asked to help seeing as you are using hot air which can hurt them.
Works easily on walls, you simply spray a little WD-40 on a clean cloth and wipe it over the marks. They should come right off, but if they are older or deeper marks you may need to push into it a little more. Because this product can get quite messy, you will need to wash your walls well with soapy warm water and a fresh rag.
If all else fails you can repaint the walls how ever you need to. As a mother it is important to not get too angry with your toddler for coloring on the walls, it may also help to include your youngsters in the chore of removing the crayon. I know with my daughter, she has not done it since.
