How to Remove Crayon from Walls

doodle by unknown 11How to Remove Crayon from Walls

What do you do when your pint-sized muralist decides that his or her latest crayon masterpiece belongs on your living room wall?  Do not fret.  Do not call your house painter.  Removing crayon from walls is as easy as grabbing a few items that you already have around the house.  Here are three tricks that will get your walls clean again.

  1. Baking Soda.  Dip a damp cloth into baking soda and lightly scrub the crayon marks.  The crayon should easily come off.
  2. Toothpaste.  Squirt a little non-gel toothpaste on the wall.  Scrub the crayon marks with a scrub brush or a cloth.  The fine abrasive in the toothpaste will rub away the crayon.
  3. WD-40.  Spray a little WD-40 on the crayon marks and wipe with a cloth.

Make sure to always test a small area first, particularly if you have wallpaper or any special wall treatment or finish.
