I remember the time my little one decided to unleash their artistic talents on our freshly painted walls with a box of crayons. It was definitely a colorful surprise!
Thankfully, I discovered a few effective methods to clean up the mess without damaging the paint. When it comes to removing crayon marks, the best approach is to start with the mildest solution. One easy option is to grab a clean cloth and dampen it slightly with warm water. Gently rub the crayon marks in a circular motion until they begin to fade. For more stubborn stains, you can create a mixture of baking soda and water to form a paste.
Apply this paste to the affected area using a soft cloth and carefully scrub until the marks disappear. If the crayon waxy residue still lingers, dip a sponge into a solution of mild dish soap and warm water. Lightly dab and rub the stains until they are completely gone. Remember to always test these cleaning solutions in an inconspicuous area beforehand to ensure they don’t cause any damage.
With a little bit of patience and these handy tricks up your sleeve, your walls will be crayon-free in no time!
