How do I get crayon marks off carpet?

Crayon Mark Removal from Carpet

It used to be that to remove carpet stains caused by crayons, one would have to scrape off as much crayon as possible with a butter knife. After than a cloth or paper towel would be placed over the area, and it would be pressed with a warm (not hot) iron. When the towel was lifted, the crayon would be removed. There's a new method for cleaning carpet stains that are wax based, however. WD-40! Just spray on, leave for a minute or two and wipe off! What could be easier than that?
