Kids and crayons are a bittersweet mix. Although it’s great
to see your kid having fun, they can easily get pretty messy
while using them, especially with their clothes.
Home remedy for cleaning crayon stained clothing
The key to removing crayon stains is heat. When you start your washing cycle make sure
that the setting is at the highest temperature possible. When it is filled with hot water add
a usual amount of detergent, a cup of white vinegar, and a cup of baking soda Once that is
established, prespot the stain with liquid detergent mixed with water. After you have
removed as much of the stain possible, soak it in washing machine for at least an hour.
Afterwards, run a regular cycle and hang dry once done. Make sure to not put it in the
dryer, because if there is any crayon residue left on the clothes, it may melt inside the
dryer and leave you with bigger problems.
