Cleaning Crayon Off Vinyl Flooring

Cleaning Ideas 01.24.14
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.

  • 1. A lovely self portrait of my youngest daughter. In blue crayon.
  • 2. Mix equal parts hot water, Dawn dish liquid and vinegar
  • 3. Use a scrub brush and voila! Clean floors.

    I would have used Mr. Clean eraser--no mixing--gets stains out of carpets, also

    WD40 will take crayon off of anything. Including the fabric roof of your car. Ha ha. It doesn't stain the fabric either.

      Shelley S Yup! WD40 takes scuff marks off vinyl floors easily too!

    My daughter only allows WASHABLE colors in the house. Seems simple enough. I have no knowledge of how they compare in price. As you can tell, I'm "older." ha

    WD-40 will also make the floor very slippery, then you have to clean THAT off. The Dawn/Vinegar/water mix WORKS on LOTS of things.
