An tips for removing from wall painted with matt emulsion, very light brown (wall, crayons are red and green) also on pvc window sill and white gloss. Toddlers, don't you love them!? Thanks

Magic erasers. I use them when dd 'decorates' our house. Amazon do them and not expensive.

I posted about this just a couple of days ago: toothpaste scrubbed over the crayon with a wet toothbrush. I was concerned some of the patches seemed paler than the rest of the wall when I'd finished, but once dry they disappeared.

I'm not keen on using magic erasers on painted walls - those have left noticeable marks, but are probably fine on your windowsill and gloss painted woodwork.

WD40 is recommended by Crayola for removing crayon from any surface. I have used it on walls and wood floors. Just spray some on the marks and wipe away with a cloth.

I was also coming on to say wd40- removed crayon from floor tiles, grouting, painted walls, and upvc window frames when DDs had a destructive phase just as we were about to move house smile
