Removing Crayon Marks from Upholstery or Carpet
A furniture warranty and bedding product company, GBS Enterprises has been in operation for more than three decades. Known as Protect All Plans, GBS Enterprises’ furniture warranty plan are fully underwritten by top insurance carriers and cover such accidents as crayon marks on fabric, wood, and leather furniture.

One of the first steps to getting rid of crayon marks on upholstery is making sure the mark has hardened. Brand new marks are often still soft, so it’s important to place an ice cube on the mark to harden the crayon before attempting to remove it. Once it’s hardened, take a dull knife or spoon and gently scrape excess wax off the couch. 

Next, you can remove the stain by blotting it with dry cleaning solvent. You may need to repeat this process several times until the stain has been completely removed. If you don’t have a dry cleaning solvent, apply liquid dish soap to the stain and let it sit for a few minutes before removing it with a damp sponge. WD-40 can also be applied directly to the stain. After letting it sit for about 10 minutes, scrub the stain with an old toothbrush and repeat until the stain is gone.

Crayon stains on carpet or rugs can be removed in a similar manner. Like before, you should scrap away any excess wax with a dull object. Then, cover the mark with a paper towel or cloth. When using a paper towel, use a blow dryer to heat up the area and absorb the color on the towel. With a cloth, you can use an iron to loosen the color. If there is any color left, leave a three percent hydrogen peroxide solution on the area for about a minute and dab the stain until it’s gone.
