    it should wash out in the laundry. It’s not a permanent mark.

    Dust it off then launder or wash under water. It is made to wash out.

      Thanx. I used 2 different kinds of chalk. One I know will come out. The other may have wax in it and doesn't want to come out w/ water. Guess adding clothes detergent will work?

    You should be able to brush it off the fabric, if not launder the item and it'll be gone. If not washable fabric, just brush until it no longer shows.

    for the wax chalk try pouring boiling water through the spot. Then launder

    ...Jody...place a stack of paper towels on the wax chalk and press with a warm ( non steam) iron to see if it melts and removes the chalk
