How to Remove Crayon from the inside of a Dryer

The last thing I needed on the day before Christmas school break and while I’m trying to finish holiday shopping online AND pack for our trip to see family is to find blue crayon in my dryer ALL OVER MY KIDS’ CLOTHES. Lucky me, that is exactly what I got this morning! Ugh.

Yep, a blue crayon, and a green one, I think, somehow got past me in the laundry and ended up going through the washer and into the dryer. Maybe because I didn’t check all the pants pockets?! Yeah, who has time for that with 8 loads of laundry staring you down? Clearly, I got smacked in the face with reality that clearly I need to check pants pockets. What? A five-year-old would smuggle blue crayons in his jean’s pockets?!? Who knew?!? 🙂

Okay, so my clothes disaster fix is still in the works so stay tuned for that outcome but I do have an answer on how to get crayon out of the inside of your dryer. The last thing you want to happen is that you put ANOTHER load in there and the crayon re-melts and ruins an entire other load, right?!

So, I lay it all out for you in today’s 2 MINUTE Baby Gizmo video!

This just happened to me! thank g-d no crayon was left in the dryer, but it got all over that wash!!! would love to hear how you got your crayon removed. What works for me so far is very tedious, run through the wash, scratch, scrub the crayon, rewash till gone.

I wonder if dryer sheets work in the dryer, if they’d work in the following manner for the clothes. Lay the color crayon marked clothes on an old white towel. Then put a dryer sheet over the area that has color crayon on it. Next use an old clothes ironing iron heated very high and place over the dryer sheet and heat that area. Lift dryer sheet and use another sheet and repeat as necessary over the areas. Just a suggestion, I haven’t tried this as I’ve never experienced such a problem. Just taking off on your suggestion of high… Read more »
