Crayons on your walls?
Crayons on your walls?

How do you get crayons off walls? Crayons happen to be an old time favorite for kids. I just wish they'd stick to the coloring books. But, chances are that if you have young children some of their most artistic work has ended up on your walls. And, it seems nothing will ever take it off. Well, I have an odd trick that really does get crayons off walls.

Colgate Toothpaste To Remove Crayon

So, as I said this trick sounds odd but it does remove crayons from walls. You will need:

  • Colgate white Toothpaste
  • Old Toothbrush
  • Container Of Water
  • An old rag

Get all of your supplies rounded up. Take your old toothbrush and put some Colgate toothpaste on it. Start 'brushing' the crayon marks. You will notices them disappear almost immediately. When your toothbrush is dry, dip it in the water and add more toothpaste. Then continue 'brushing' the crayon marks off your wall. When finished take your old rag and wet it, then wipe your walls off. That's it. This process is completely easy and works amazingly well.
