June 27, 2008, Newsletter Issue #246: Crayon Mark Removal from Wood Furniture

Tip of the Week

There are a few things to try when attempting to remove crayon marks from woos furniture. First, try cleaning with Murphy´s Oil Soap. This should remove the crayon without harming the finish. If not, try mineral spirits, which should also be safe on the finish. WD-40 or Avon Skin-So-Soft should also work, but test on a non-visible area first. Non-gel toothpaste should also be a safe alternative. If all else fails, try applying a little heat from a hair dryer to soften the crayon, then blot with paper towels.
