  1. Melt crayon with a warm iron place a brown bag over the crayon then place a cloth over the bag and iron over cloth and bag to melt the wax, the brown paper bag will absorb the wax, Then pour on some White Vinegar onto the stained areas allow to soak in for a few hours then wash as normal with one cup of White Vinegar poured into the washer and wash on the hottest temperature your clothes can handle

    There is also a product called Goo Gone follow the instructions on the bottle for removal of wax

    Remove hardened wax with a dull knife. Place stain facedown on paper towels. Tackle from the back with cleaning fluid or dry-cleaning solvent. Still there, Treat with a solution of 1 tablespoon mild white hand dish-washing liquid and 1 teaspoon household ammonia in 1 cup water. Then wash according to care label in the hottest water safe for the fabric.


    Scrape with dull blade. Wash in hottest water safe for fabric, with detergent and 1-2 cups of baking soda. Note:: If full load is crayon stained, take to cleaners or coin-op dry cleaning machines. Good Luck !
