My daughter drew a lovely crayon masterpiece today. The only problem was that she chose the couch as her 'canvas'. When I saw what she had done I logged onto Under "helpful information" I found a whole section on stain removal. This site tells you how to remove any of their products from almost any surface, thankfully including upholstery. My couch now smells a bit like WD-40, but is crayon free. Hopefully the smell will dissapate after a few days and/or a bottle of Febreeze!

Good tips about crayon removal are always welcome. I had not thought to check the Crayola website.

Great tip, by the way this reminds me that one way to remove pen ink is to apply hairspray on the stain, it disolves the ink. I have tried it a couple of times and it worked. Depending of the stain more than one application may be needed. The key is not to wash the stain before applying the hairspray otherwise the ink is set for good.

Thank you! My darling daughter just wrote on her bedroom wall with crayon, and I've been too scared to try and clean it off! I'd be in prison with Karla if it hadn't been an obscure corner of the room!

Wow! thanks for the tip. I use the web a lot but going to the crayola website for stain removal information never occurred to me...hmm I wonder if they have anything about cleaning up messes from there 'washable' markers....

thank you thank you thank you! I hadn't thought of going to the source on this either. I have two toddlers and they apparently are under the impression they are master artists. Now, if Crayola would only tell us how to keep toddlers from hoarding crayons so that they can leap up at a moment's notice to "express" themselves on, say, every blind in the house.

Logging onto the crayola website was really smart. I wouldn't have thought of that, and would probably be serving a lengthy sentence for child abuse...
