I had a reader email me and ask me how to get crayons out of clothes that have been thru the washer and the dryer. Here are my two suggestions. FIRST I would recommend Resolve All Stains , I tried it for the first time a few months ago and LOVED it. I got crayons out of a load of laundry, and many other stains out. I was so excited I even did a youtube video on it, you can watch it below. Best part it is less than $5 a bottle. This works great for spot treating.
If you can not view the video you can watch How to get crayons out of clothes with Resolve , Here
IF YOU HAVE A WHOLE LOAD that needed treated you might try this magic recipe.
My friend Melissa did this(with her kids brand new summer clothes) she was so excited when she was able to get it all out with a “magic recipe” that she was willing to share it with all of you…
Here is the magic recipe:
HOW TO GET CRAYONS OUT OF CLOTHES
1 c. Clorox 2
1 c. Borax
1 c. white vinegar
1 c. hydrogen peroxide
1 c. Triple Action Shout
3/4 c. Oxy Magic
It’ll cost you about $30 to get it all but that is better than having to replace your clothes (which I’m sure would cost hundreds). Put your “ruined” clothes in the washer and put all of these ingredients on top of them. Set your washer to hot water and to a heavily soiled setting. The clothes need to soak for at least 30 minutes (so depending on what kind of washer you have- either use soak option on washer or fill your tub with enough hot water to soak the clothes). Then wash normally with your regular detergent.
I seriously do not have a single sign of red or pink in my clothes. I am thrilled with the results. Think of me when/if you have to use this and let me know how it worked for you.
