I'm thinking kitchen roll, a tea towel and a warm iron (can I iron walls?)Any other suggestions?
Hairspray! I saw it on How Clean Is Your House.Never tried it myself, but it certainly worked.Sorry don't know about carpets.
I might try that, did they just spray it on then wipe it straight off again?
Yes, enough to cover all the crayon marks, then I think they used a clean dry cloth, rubbed in a circular motion and it all came off.Good luck
Thanks, will add hairspray to the shopping list and hid the offending patch of wall behind a chair till then.
Wd40Works wonders on wax crayon
Ooh, now we've definitely got that in the house, will that do funny things to the carpet though?
Maybe try a little where noone would look
Hmm, yes maybe I'll try that.
Another one here for wd40!
if you have wallpaper or matt walls, WD40 may make a greasy spot. Try a magic eraser if you haven't already.For carpets... ironing through a tea towel may work. Test a spot carefully to make sure you don't end up just staining the area.
