Three ways to remove wax crayons from walls

If your house has recently been redecorated with some unwanted crayon masterpieces then we have the perfect solutions. These three tips can help you on the way to removing those stubborn “masterpieces”.

 

Toothpaste –

Any toothpaste which is non-gel and has some form of abrasive in it should work for this technique. Apply toothpaste to the crayon on the wall and scrub. The abrasive in the toothpaste should help to move the crayon off the wall whilst keeping the paint intact. The team at readersdigest.com recommend to follow this up by simply washing the wall with warm water after cleaning to clean off the remaining toothpaste.

 

Magic eraser –

Magic erasers such as Mr Clean Magic Erasers are renowned for being extremely effective at what they clean. Katelyn Fagan at whatsupfagans.com recommends to test this out on a small portion of the surface with crayon on before use. The magic eraser is so effective at removing the crayon if used too much it may also scrub off paint on the walls.

 

Blow Dryer –

Using a blow dryer to heat up the wax on the wall allows the crayon to be easily lifted using a simple wet and soapy cloth. Thespruce.com recommends this as their top technique to remove crayon from the walls. They also warn that whichever cloth you use to wipe it off may also retain the crayon so do not use something you are afraid to get rid of. This comes from “Sarah Aguirre” from thespruce.com.

 

Crayon stains should not be a big hassle any longer. Following one or many of these techniques is almost guaranteed to leave your wall crayon free. Our blog has many other cleaning tips and tricks to help you clean around the house.

Bespoke Service

We are not happy until you are! Your cleaner will usually tailor their services to fit exactly with your requirements, including spring cleaning and ironing.

Peace of Mind

Only 1 in 50 applicants makes it on to our carefully screened database. We interview them twice, visit them in their own homes and take up at least two references. And if they still subsequently don't measure up to your standards, we will send you someone who does.

Personal Cleaner

We don't operate in teams, and therefore you get the same cleaner every week. This is good because you develop a relationship with your cleaner. We have some clients who have had the same cleaner for years and years - and that's what we want for you.
