My little girl got up from bed and she wanted to color so way she was coloring I was getting school work done and turned and she stuck a crayon down her pj. So after I got done with homework and stuff. I start a load of laundry and I shook the clothes to make sure that they was nothing in them and I guess all of it didn't fall and I washed the crayon and dried them in the dryer so now I need to know how to get crayon out of her clothing.

1) Put the clothes in the washer, and set the water to hot.

2) Add your laundry detergent, 1/2 cup of vinegar, and 4-6 Tbs. of dishwasher liquid.

3) Let the clothes soak for 10-15 minutes.

4) Let the wash run normal.

I just did this my self with the crayon last nite and found this today and so far it is working thank god cause if my ex finds out i messed his jacket up he will be mad but i think its funny. i did like how i got kool pants out of the deal though old but new :)

I have not tried this myself, but a friend of mine used this technique. Take a paper towel and place over the crayon area. Then use the steam feature and iron/steam out the crayon. The paper towel is supposed to 'suck' up the crayon wax.

what colour are her pj's?

if they are white you can use a tablespoon of milton sterilising fluid...put over stain then leave for ten min, scrape out crayon mark and wash in machine again. or you can use vanish stain remover in the pink tub ...
