Yes, kids like to try new things. They don’t know that the beautiful clean walls are not blank canvases, begging to be decorated! In this post, I will share with you the two awesome essential oils that I have used to remove crayon from walls.
Help Me Remove Crayon from Walls!
As busy moms, we try our best to keep dangerous things at bay from little ones, dangerous things like crayons, that is. We try our best to channel their curiosities and energy toward the right activities. But, you know, we aren’t perfect. And one day, the wrong thing, at the wrong place and at the wrong time, the little one find a crayon and a blank wall. What?!
Now, your wall is decorated and you have a big issue. How do you clean crayon off walls without damaging the paint while removing the crayon wax off altogether? Have no fear! You can do this and more without using harsh chemicals! Not only are harsh chemicals bad to inhale (for you, your family and your indoor pets), but they can also damage the paint, discolor it or maybe not even remove all the crayon altogether.
The Best Essential Oils to Remove Crayon from Walls
I have fallen prey to this antic from my kids several times, so I have had time to troubleshoot and attempt different solutions. Most, didn’t do well. Just read my above-mentioned fiascos. Our poor walls! But you know what? I found a solution! Yes! Finally! After trying it on a small spot on the wall, I was surprised that this worked so well! Actually, I found two essential oils that work well.
Thieves and lemon essential oils are the best ones that I have tried that work perfectly to remove crayon off the wall. The way I did it was to use a glass spray bottle. I filled it up with water and added 3 drops of Thieves and 3 drops of lemon essential oils by Young Living.
First, I shook it well and sprayed on the crayon. I let it sit for a few seconds and then used a soft sponge (like the one pictured above) to gently scrub it off). I was surprised at how easy it was! Then, I rinsed the sponge off well and wrung it. After that, I ran the sponge over the area with just water on it, to remove any residue of the wax and/or the essential oils. I love how the wall smells now!
Try it! I think you will find it helpful. Or keep this in mind, in case you ever have to use this! 🙂 Share this tip with your friends!
