Does your kid enjoy drawing with crayons? Well, that is very nice, but they probably draw not only on the paper, right? You probably have some stains on your walls, don't you? That is no longer a problem. Here are some of the best methods how to get rid of crayon marks on walls:
- Shaving cream - apply it on the stain and rub it in. Leave it to work for 15 minutes and then all you have to do is to wipe it off. Cleaners Frankston say you will be amazed by the result.
- Baking soda – make a paste of baking soda and water and scrub the mark or just sprinkle some baking soda on a sponge and rub with it.
- Vinegar – dip a toothbrush into some white vinegar and then scrub the stain off.
- Ammonia – dip a cloth in some household ammonia and rub it into the stains. Then rub some soapy water on it too. After that rinse with a cloth damped with water.
- Hairspray – spray a little and then scrape off the crayons.
- Powder dishwasher detergent – make a paste with water and then rub it in the stain.
- Hand lotion – rub some into the marks and then they will easily wipe off.
- Moist baby wipes – use them directly on the marks and just scrub the crayon off.
- Heat – use a hairdryer and direct it towards the marks. Let it heat the wax. Damp a towel with some hot soapy water and wipe the heated wax off. Cleaners Brunswick suggest you could also use a clothes iron, with no steam on. But it should be on low heat setting so it will not scorch the pain. Place a few paper towels or a normal towel between the iron and the wall.
Make sure that before you use any cleaning solution you try them on an small area of the wall, so that you make sure it doesn't harm the paint or discolour it.
