How to Get Crayon Off the Walls


So you seem to have yourself a little artist? It’s always wonderful when the children find a hobby which they enjoy and it’s even better when they draw on paper. But alas, your little ones masterpieces have ended up on the walls instead. Well fret not, here are some of our favourite speedy solutions to remove them…

  1. Baking Soda

Grab yourself a damp cloth and dip it in some baking soda then proceed to lightly scrub the marks. The scribbles should come off with hardly any effort.

  1. WD-40

Your walls are not a giant colouring book! Try spraying some WD-40 on the marks and wipe them with a clean cloth. The WD-40 should not damage the paint or most of the wallpapers- however it is best to test it before going ahead.

  1. Toothpaste

Using non-gel toothpaste and a scrub brush, squirt the paste onto the wall and simply scrub. The fine abrasive found in toothpaste will rub away the crayon every single time. Finally, rinse with water.

  1. Mayonnaise

Yes, this condiment can actually remove crayon from your walls! Just rub some mayo onto the colourings, let it soak in then wipe the surface clean!

  1. Vinegar

Rub crayon marks with a toothbrush dipped in undiluted vinegar and you should see the marks practically disappear. Just be prepared for a strong smell!
