Cleaning: Crayon Marks
 
 

crayons

 

Save money cleaning crayon marks from walls by trying a frugal, thrift friendly product like baby oil.  Using a soft rag, rub it over the marks.  Let it set a minute, and then see if the oil loosens the crayon wax enough to rub it off.  Use warm water and a mild detergent and finish wiping off the wall.
