DS has drawn on the wall using crayola crayons.Jif/Cif doesn't work. Water doesn't work.Help!
Have you tried Astonish paste? That has worked for me in the past with crayons on things.
I have always found this useful JML Magic Eraser you can get it in ASDA, not sure about other supermarkets.
Yes, the magic eraser works, it gets felt tip pen off dining room tables too!
I use a sponge called the great white sponge which i got from Halfords. works really well.
WD-40!! Magic stuff.
Yes wd40 works in wax crayons
Oooooh! I have WD40 in the kitchen due to a creaky hinge...<sprints off>
Hairspray removes crayon from everything, and it removes lipgloss from fabric after a tube goes in the wash Glares at 7yo DD2
Cheap as chips baby wipes worked for me on paint but have never tried getting it of wallpaper...watching thread for ideas. Never thought of trying WD40.
<sprints back with arms aloft>Well, I have a house that smells like a garage, but I have un crayoned walls to all those who suggested WD40, it's magical!
(But this was on painted walls, not wallpapered for reference)
White bread, a MN recommendation and it worked.I find a baby wipe gets rid of most things, have just removed pencil from the mantlepiece courtesy of DS.
My usual standby of baby wipes failed at this level of crayoning as the wall is a bit badly painted rough, so it took the top level off but still left a sort of under-print IYSWIM.WD40 took it off in seconds.
