  1. My budding artist of a 2 yr old does this every day! Thanks so much for the tip, I've got plenty of places to go try it out on! =)

  2. My two year old must have been talking to yours today. ;) Except…do you have any tips for getting crayon out of carpet? I plan to google it later… :)

  3. wow! thanks!!! our 2-year old decided to be creative when he was upstairs! i've been using a magic eraser and it gets some of it off.

    anyone know how to get chalk off the walls?? i tried using the eraser, and it kinda just smeared everything :P

  4. don't know about chalk but wd-40 ( a spray lubricant) gets many greasy stains out of all kinds of things….it can be washed out after it dissolves the greasy stain. Of course, test it on the material/fabric first in an inconspicuous spot….also, hydrogen peroxide mixed with equal parts tide and water used as a soak/prewash gets unbelievable stains out of clothing/washables. Other than the magic eraser that's all I got! Be careful with the magic erasers though; they are abrasive….I took thie color out of my laminate countertop with one…. :O

  5. Mr. Clean Magic Sponge!!!! It takes off crayon, marker and may even take off that chalk!
