For crayon marks on walls, I use a magic eraser (it works on tables to). To get wax off the wall, I take a soft scrubby and then wipe the wall down with a warm water .It usually comes right off.

Not sure this will work on walls but you could try on a small spot. Lysol Kitchen cleaner. I just used it on our wood floor. My kids decided to color the floor yesterday and I wasn't sure what to do, so I just grabbed the first thing I thought of and much to my surprised, the crayon came right off the floor. No scrubbing required.

I too have had good luck w/ the Magic Eraser. And I have also found Solumel from Melaleuca to be my magic wand. You have to order it through Melaleuca www.melaleuca.com or from someone you know who uses it. Good luck!!

I just learned a trick a few weeks ago for crayon. Goo Gon!! I bought an entertainment center at a yard sale for $20 and it was so cheap because it was covered in crayon marks. I took goo gon and it came right off!!! The magic eraser worked to but on wood it left a little bit of a film.

Toothpaste for the crayon always works, always permenant pen on marker boards gets it off a treat

I use Magic Eraser on my walls, even in my bathroom to clean the tub and sink. I'm not sure about candle wax though, never had that problem.

Magic Eraser is your best bet for the crayon!! I have a wall artist myself. I had to by several and go over the wall several times.(it was black crayon) I used the generic Target brand it's about 2 dollars cheaper and does the trick!! Good luck!

There is a spray that you can get and it is great for just about anything , It is called GOO GONE SPRAY GEL. It is good for wax ,sticky glue from stickers on window shield, You can use it on walls , carpets . You name it . You can even use it on fine linen or table cloths.

Cover the wax with paper towels or newsprint. Iron the spot with a warm iron until the wax is absorbed by the paper. You might need to use a little cleaner to get the last of the color off after you've got all the wax off. But most of the color will come off with the wax. I've done this to get candle and crayon wax off clothes and carpet. It works great!

You could try windex. Although it for glass, I found that it works on walls, wood, and plastic. Just make sure you scrub lightly in a circular motion and warm up the sponge first.

Get a rag that you really do not care about and get a hot Iron and then put the rag over the wax and crayon and Iron it. The heat will melt every thing and then you can wipe it all off

The crayon will come off with a Mr. Clean magic eraser. (that thing is just that, magic). I would try it on the candle wax. Also, I have heard that if you iron a rag over the wax, the wax will melt and stick to the rag instead of the wall. You could try that.

Magic Eraser works on a many of things and I know for a fact, it is great for crayon marks. Have had to use it many times before but please test it in a small area to make sure that it does not take off the paint also.

Wear rubber gloves when doing this !! boiling water gets anything out or off!!!! with the boiling water use any kind of soap dish , shampoo, hand... as long as it is liquid and mix it in a bowl or bucket and just wipe it off *** don't let the water cool down do it ASAP!! And dont forget your gloves!! it is easy and cheap!!
