How to remove crayon stains

When pint-sized Picassos get to work on their latest masterpieces, it’s not surprising to find crayon stains everywhere, even on one’s favourite shirt. Crayon stains are not so simple to remove since they’re a combination of greasy stains thanks to the wax and also oxidisable due to the colour. You’ll want to use bleaching agents to remove this kind of stain, which you’ll find in our Ariel Original Washing Liquid. However, be sure the stain has completely gone before you pop it in the drier, as any leftover stain will get set into the fabric. With Ariel stain solutions and our tips on crayon stain removal there is no need to worry about how to get rid of crayon stains on clothes. Here’s a little help from Ariel.
