Even when crayon says it’s washable, it still never seems to come off of walls. Well, in case your kids are like mine and they get a little too creative with their artwork, I just found the best trick ever to help you remove crayon from walls! All you need is baking soda and a damp cloth...
Here’s my budding artist, getting caught in the act of scribbling all over my light blue painted living room walls! Ach!!

Step 1: Gather Your Materials
All I needed to clean the masterpiece off was a damp cloth and some baking soda. Step 2: Wipe Lightly
With just a quick wipe, everything came off. It was so simple, I almost wanted her to draw on the wall again, just to get that rush of accomplishment...almost!
This was so easy! Now I just need to find something that gets crayon off the couch...stay tuned!
Suggested materials:
  • Baking soda
  • A damp cloth

    Actually Magic Eraser has some type of melamine foam in it which has a sandpaper-like microscopic texture. So basically whatever you use it one is being sanded down.

      Good to know Sonia, thank you. I'll stick with the baking soda!

    Toothpaste works well too. For those who don't mind using chemicals...409! As my daughter says...the world is not ready for 410!...409 cleans everything she comes into contact with as a school custodian.
