Cleaning Crayon Off Vinyl Flooring

1,976 Views
I have a love/hate relationship with crayons. On one hand they spark creative genius but on the other hand, they are destruction just waiting to happen.
My darling daughter became Picasso last night and drew all over our kitchen floor.
I have a great way to clean up those stubborn crayon marks.

    I tried a couple of things before the Dawn and vinegar mixture and it didn't budge! That stuff is a dream!

    That's a great recipe! Another simple trick, we would use a bit of Pledge or clear shoe polish and a piece from a web belt (any tough piece of material will do). It's all about using what you have until you find what works!

    Try Oxy acne medicine. REALLY!! or go to the Dollar General and buy CLEAR ZIT and it will take all the ink off any vinyl item.. But you must leave it on there for a day. I use it to restore dolls all the time that has marks like ink or marker.
