How to Clean Crayon From a Wall

What is it about toddlers and crayons and walls? Instead of sharing those colorful thoughts of yours with the doodling toddler, do something really off-the-wall: Get little Sam or Susie to help you make the colorful wax disappear.

Gently scrape away the wax with a plastic spoon or spatula.

Sprinkle baking soda on a damp white cloth.

Give the cloth to one of your tots and have him rub the marks off.

Dampen a sponge for the other one and have her rinse clean the residue.

Really stubborn marks may require Mom or Dad to spray on a very grown-up product: WD-40 or other multipurpose lubricating oil.

Wipe the wall clean with a damp towel.

  • Towel
  • White Cloth
  • Baking Soda
  • Plastic Spoon Or Spatula
  • Multipurpose Lubricating Oil


  • Buy washable crayons.
  • Pencil marks can be removed with an artist's gum eraser (available at most art supply stores).
