- Scrape the crayon from the carpet with a spoon. Avoid pulling forcefully as the threads in the carpet may weaken and become loose. Remove as much of the crayon as possible without damaging the carpet.
- Apply a lubricant such as WD-40 or mineral oil to the remaining melted crayon. Allow the lubricant to remain on the stain for five minutes.
- Scrub the crayon with an old toothbrush. Apply additional lubricant if needed to loosen the crayon stain. Remove loosened crayon and lubricant from the carpet with white paper towels.
- Apply 1 tsp. liquid dish soap and a fingertip amount of lubricant to the stained area of the carpet. Scrub the area with the toothbrush. Wipe the carpet with a damp rag, removing the soap and lubricant from the carpet. If the stain remains, repeat using the dish soap and lubricant until stain is completely removed.
- Press paper towels into the carpet to absorb excess liquid.
