Question: How do I remove crayon stains from clothes?
Here's how to remove crayon stains from clothes:
Answer: To remove crayon from clothing, use WD-40 and dishwashing liquid. Put a folded white paper towel under the fabric and spray WD-40 onto a clean white cloth and dab it on both sides of the stain. Next, rub a bit of dishwashing liquid into the crayon mark. Let the paper towel absorb the crayon stain. When the stain seems to have disappeared, launder according to fabric label directions.

If the garment is dry clean only, point out and identify the stain to your professional cleaner. If you are using a home dry cleaning kit, be sure to treat the stain with the provided stain remover before putting the garment in the dryer bag.
