The Essential Bathroom Product That Can Help Clean Crayon Off Your Walls
The task of getting crayon off the walls can be daunting. However, there is an easy trick to removing crayon drawings from painted walls that involves toothpaste.
Start with a basic white, non-gel toothpaste to avoid the risk of colored dyes staining your wall. Apply the paste to the offending drawings and scrub with a brush.
Take a couple of passes if needed, then wipe the residue with a clean, damp cloth. The toothpaste will lift away the waxy residue crayons leave behind and not damage the paint.
Toothpaste is a unique and helpful cleaning option, as the abrasives that make it up are excellent scouring agents but aren't strong enough to damage the paint on your walls.
Moreover, many toothpastes are imbued with fluoride and other whitening agents, which can help reduce staining when used as a housecleaning product.
