How to Get Crayon Out of Clothing


Your little artist has extended his or her artistic abilities to include crayon all over a best outfit! Here’s what to do…

Lay the cloth stain-side up on a stack of paper towels (about eight sheets). Spray the stained area with WD-40 lubricant, and let it set for three to five minutes. Turn the cloth over and spray the other side, letting it set for another three to five minutes. Then launder as usual. If the item of clothing is delicate or you just want to play it safe, test an inconspicuous spot before using all over.
