Black crayon on a cream carpet!

Has anyone got any ideas as to how I might get black crayon off a cream carpet as dd did a lovely big scribble on said carpet this afternoon and so far Vanish carpet cleaner and a lot of elbow grease hasn' shifted it.

Also, if I can't get it off do you think that I could claim on my house insurance under accidental damage? Or is that just cheeky?

no idea, is it wax & a wool carpet??? It could be the iron & greaseproof paper trick.

Yes I think you can claim for it BUT you will get increased premiums so I'd probably live with it until your dc are older.

It is wax but the carpet is some sort of wool mix with lots of ther stuff in there too.

I think you can't use the iron trick then!

Have you tried googling for solutions?

They've got the iron trick and various other suggestions including rubbing alcohol, hydrogen peroxide and WD-40!

Have you any offcuts you could practice on?
