Crayon off Cupboards and Counters

This question was submitted from Tracy…

My son colored several of our kitchen cupboards with crayons. We tried window cleaner, but now the wax is smeared all over. What will remove this mess?

Think of how Rembrandt or Monet got started!  Did their mom’s have to clean oil paints off the walls?

The best solution is likely in your basement or garage. It is WD-40, a spray lubricant used for tons of things including cleaning.  Spray some on a clean, dry, cotton cloth and wipe the stain. It is that simple.

This works on most hard surfaces, including tables, counters, walls, and televisions. Avoid spraying the lubricant directly on the surface if possible, and test a small area to be sure it does not damage the finish.

  1. The best thing for removing crayon or other wax products (candles, etc.) is a hair dryer and a damp cloth. The hair dryer melts the wax and the damp cloth wipes it away. 🙂
