Tips for cleaning crayon off walls and more!

Updated on October 18, 2015

I had to post this blog for families and parents sake. I have to sit back and smile and think of all of the parents who are going through "they are doing stuff they shouldn't stages"! It never fails if you accidentally left something out at child level. What happens when your child picks the lipstick up it up and does exactly what you don't want them to do. Kids can can be lightning fast! Now, lets talk about boo boos , maybe they got sunburned or gum in their hair. Here are a few helpful tips and hints to get stuff out, off and cleaned up.

  • Gum in Hair Believe it or not Peanut Butter works! My daughter had the most beautiful hair as a child. Just rub crunchy peanut butter on the spot and the gum will clump up and come off. (Did you know that the American Indians chewed sap like gum?) cola is supposed to do the trick too, but never tried it.
  • Crayon on walls Did they go to town while u were on the phone? Just get some baking soda and a wet rag and scrub it right off. you can also use steel wool, but be careful scrubbing too hard on anything white.
  • Sunburn Pain You decided to go to the lake and your sunblock didn't work? use baking soda and water mixed into a lotion consistency, you can also use it for chicken pocks, or bee stings too.
  • Use baby oil to get those band aids off ,this one really saves a lot of stress and crying.
