Fixing Frustration: Wall “Art”

Colorful crayons, tips to remove crayon stains on walls
Crayons, Bread, Mayonnaise and Vinegar

Children’s art projects can be great, if they manage to stay on paper or canvas. Once the little artist branches off to new mediums, like your walls, things rapidly become less adorable. Don’t worry, here are three inexpensive, easy ways to clean up your wandering Picasso’s art spree.

The first solution is very simple – bread. Yep, sometimes balling up a piece of bread and using it to scrub the crayon lines is enough to remove the stains. Another easy option is vinegar. Soak a sponge in some white vinegar and rub the crayon marks with it (watch out for dripping) – the vinegar should help lift the waxy marks off the wall. Finally, there’s always mayonnaise. Put a little mayo over the crayon marks and let it sit there for a minute or two. Afterwards, wipe away the mayo and crayon marks with a damp cloth.

Be sure to test these products in an inconspicuous area first, just to make sure you won’t damage your paint or wallpaper in any way. Also, be sure to wipe down these areas with a wet cloth so no bread/vinegar/mayo is left behind. If you don’t do that, you may have a very unique smelling wall in your house.

Amazing customer service!! Your carpets are basically dry when they leave, so there’s no waiting like 12 hours before you can walk on it without your feet getting gross and wet! Unbelievable value for your money, and they always do a follow up check, if it’s not perfect they come back almost immediately and fix the problem, no cost. We’ve used them twice now (we have two dogs, medium and large size) and a newborn... treatments are safe for kids, and all the pet dander is gone!! Won’t ever use another carpet cleaning service ever again! TA. - Raleigh, NC - 02/17/2019

Like that it’s dry so fast, took out stains I thought wouldn’t come out, liked that very little water was used and completely impressed by this new technology. I kept putting this off because I have two big dogs that have the run of the house and dreaded the thought of trying to keep them off of it RC. - Lakewood, CO - 02/18/2019
