Kids. They change your life, they change your priorities and they can turn your home upside down in 5 minutes flat. As parents we are constantly facing new challenges, not the least of which are the mind-boggling cleaning tasks created by our little angels. Gum in the carpet? Crayon graffiti? Stickers on… everything?? This post is the last in a three part series for all my puzzled parents.
Crayon on Painted Walls
If your little Michelangelo created a waxy, technicolor fresco in the dining room you might try…
- Toothpaste. Nothing fancy, no gels! Only paste will do. Just rub the marks with the paste then wipe it clean with a damp rag.
- Hairspray. Just spray it on and wipe it off! This works good on pen and even permenent marker too!
- A “magic” eraser. You can get them cheap at any art supplies store so stock up!
Remember to test your stain busting method for removing crayon scribbles on an inconspicuous part of the wall before you try and treat the whole stain.
