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.

David and Blake that were sent to do the carpet cleaning, for me, did a good job. Though, I did have to have them over again , as it seemed like in some areas a second time would do better.! However, I think, it was probably the fabric of the carpet or could be the stain, itself being too tough.I appreciate that they came again, and now my carpet looks really nice.They both make a great team ! decent behavior and great service!
