WAX & CRAYON

We sell some products that have proven effective in removing crayon from some kinds of fabrics. Check out our "Bottled Chemicals" section by clicking here.

TIPS FOR REMOVING WAX & CRAYONS: With a dull knife or the edge of a spoon, scrape away as much of the wax or crayon as possible. Vacuum up the bits of wax that you were able to loosen. This step alone may take several attempts. Next, place a clean absorbent towel over the stain and press with a warm iron. The heat will melt the wax and the absorbent towel will soak up the melted wax. Sponge final traces of the stain with a cleaning fluid. A more effective method if the fabric can withstand the heat is to use a steam iron and, without touching the iron to the carpet, jet hot steam onto the wax, then quickly absorb the melted wax with a clean white towel.
If the wax is colored additional steps may need to be taken in order to remove the coloring. Sponge it with alcohol* diluted with two parts of water. Rinse or sponge lightly with water. Return to Spot Removal Guide
If it is crayon and is not melted follow the directions for "Cosmetics".

*NOTE: Some products like hydrogen peroxide, or alcohol can actually bleach or change the color in some fabrics. Read the WARNING notice below and proceed with caution whenever you use such products.
 WARNING: Before making any attempts to remove spots, always test fabric for colorfastness first by applying a small amount of the cleaning solution or chemical on a hidden or unnoticeable area. The tips listed here are not guaranteed to work with every carpet or upholstered item. When using any chemical or liquid on fabric you should PROCEED WITH CAUTION. If you are unsure as to how your carpet or upholstery might be affected you should call a professional cleaning technician in your area.
