Removing crayon stains from whites and colors
Scrape away as much as possible with a dull knife. Color yourself unimpressed.
Gently blot with a napkin to absorb as much as possible.
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.
Pre-treat remaining stain using Clorox® Stain Remover & Color Booster. Let sit for 3–5 minutes.
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.
When transferring crayon to brown paper bag, dark brown splotches mean crayon is absorbing.
