Crayon Marks on the Walls

Lil Tip: Wax on, Wax Off

Children love crayons and eventually they seem to find their artistic ways on the walls of your house. Instead of panicking, relax and use a common household product to clean off the scribbles.

You know that citrus scented stuff, Goo Gone? Use a washcloth and scrub the spot with the solution. After you have magically erased the marks from the wall, use soap and water to wipe it clean. Once it dries, your wall should be as good as new.

Of course if it's a work of art and you have a masterpiece on your hands, you might want to turn that wall into a free for all and let 'em at it!

Has this Goo Gone trick ever worked for you?

goo gone is best for basically 'goo' that a child left somewhere and you find it a day or two later. Instead of scraping- soak it with this. It is a little greasy, so it isn't my first choice. I have seen it at Target and also at bed bath beyond and linens & things. So glad people love Magic Erasers- I can just go crazy with those and use up two of them a day with all the smudges my kids leave around. They are great for some stubborn grout stains as well!
