Removing crayon stains from whites and colors

One
Scrape
Scrape away as much as possible with a dull knife. Color yourself unimpressed.

Two
Blot
Gently blot with a napkin to absorb as much as possible.

Three
Transfer
Place a clean, non-waxy, brown paper bag over the spot. Dry iron on low. Repeat using a clean part of the bag until no more crayon is absorbed.

Four
Pre-Treat
Pre-treat remaining stain using Clorox® Stain Remover & Color Booster. Let sit for 3–5 minutes.
Five
Wash
Wash in hot water, with detergent, as recommended on care label. Add Clorox® Stain Remover & Color Booster product. Air-dry to keep crayon residue out of the dryer. Repeat if necessary.


Tip
When transferring crayon to brown paper bag, dark brown splotches mean crayon is absorbing.
