My daughter drew on her clothes with crayons and I was wondering if anyone had any tips to get it out. Thanks! :)

Place a piece of wax paper on the crayon and iron it on low. It should come out. If the wax paper doesn't work try a old piece of cloth. Hope this helps

If you can't get it out in the wash, DO NOT run the clothes through the dryer, that will only set the crayon in.

Have you tried Pre-spot and/or Sol-U-Mel? There are products from Melaleuca? There EcoSense product line is amazing.

I've always used Thunder Blast. It's a degreaser that you can get at the dollar store and it works great.

Try Oxy Clean. I know it gets indelible black marker out of fleece sweats. (ask me how I know LOL) It's gotta work on crayon.

I know that using a hair dryer will melt crayon off walls...not sure about clothes...the wax paper and iron idea seems like it would work
