Q: Help! Removing Melted Crayon From Car Upholstery Please Help me, I need to remove a blue melted Crayola Crayon from my car upholstery! Any suggestions please contact me -- Tancey3333 Reply  

A: Hello, My girlfriend has the same problem with her car her little sister left an assortment of crayons in the backseat of her car which we live in Arizona so as you might of imagined it gets really HOT. And of course  they melted so she came to me with this problem of hers and I decided to  do a little bit of internet searching on how to remove this crayon and I  found many helpful ways. So here's a list and let me know how it works  out for you

1. Crayon on Fabric

**Important* - Always read and follow the care instructions and any  warnings provided by the upholstery manufacturer. Upholstery with  natural fibers and/or certain dyes or finishes may require special  treatment. If in doubt contact the manufacturer or a cleaning  professional for advice/service. Also follow these General Rules  for care and stain treatment.

* Blot to remove excess liquid or stain. Wet stain with small amount of alcohol or dry cleaning solvent and blot dry immediately. Repeat until no stain is on paper towel.

* If fabric stain is persistent, wet stained area with water. Apply small amount of detergent/water solution, work into stained area with sponge and blot. Repeat detergent/water application until no stain is evident on towel.

* Rinse with clear water to remove traces of detergent and blot dry. It is important to remove all traces of detergent to prevent rapid resoiling.

* Rinse with 3% acetic acid or 50/50 vinegar/water solution. Blot dry.

2. Carpeting and durable car interiors-cloth


Dull knife or metal spoon
Liquid dish-wash detergent
Small stiff bristle brush
Sponge Paper towels


Scrape excess crayon off with a dull-edged knife. Spray with WD-40 and  let stand a few minutes. With a small, stiff bristle brush, work crayon  stain and wipe with paper towels. Re-spray with WD-40 and apply  dishwashing detergent on the sprayed area; work in with the brush and  wipe stain away with a damp sponge. If stain remains, repeat the procedure.

Use Carpet & Upholstery Treatment to eliminate WD-40 odor and freshen  carpet or upholstery.

Tip: Crayon Mark Removal from Car Upholstery:  To get crayon marks off  upholstery, first scrape excess crayon off with a dull-edge knife or  metal spoon. Spray with WD-40 and let stand a few minutes. With a small,  stiff bristle brush work crayon stain and wipe with paper towels.  Respray with WD-40 and apply liquid dishwashing detergent on the sprayed  area; work in with the brush and wipe stain away with a damp sponge. If  stain remains, repeat the procedure.

Hope these help and be sure to let me know how it works out for you - Doug  Comment

Q: Melted Crayon in Dryer A Blue Crayon melted all over my dryer and I would like know how remove it. -- Angie Sokolowsky  Reply

A: Crayon On Walls   I have tried both of the other methods you have shown, and neither worked successfully. The only method I found that worked quickly and easily was to use white spirit and an only rag. It works a treat, but be careful on emulsion walls (it works best on vinyl and gloss). -- Ian Matthews  Reply

Crayon Marks on Walls To remove crayon marks from your walls, heat it with a hair dryer for a few seconds, then wipe with a soft cloth. The wax of the crayon melts and will wipe right off. -- KKristinLM Reply

A: To remove Crayon from walls  Use Goo Gone it worked like magic! I then followed up with household cleaner safe for painted surfaces. -- "markcc" Reply
