If you have kids, you know that they can make messes virtually anywhere and out of virtually anything. Snack time leaves a trail of crumbs, and craft time can leave behind crayon and marker stains. Don’t worry though, because we have some cleaning tips to help you get those crayon and marker stains out of your carpet and upholstery. 

To clean crayon stains from carpet and upholstery, you can spray WD-40 on the stain. Then, let it sit for a few minutes before using a small, stiff brush to clean the stain. Wipe up any excess with a paper towel. Then, reapply the WD-40, but this time also add liquid dish soap. Scrub the stain with the same brush and use a towel or sponge to wipe up any excess moisture. Repeat if necessary.

Another method for cleaning crayon stains requires that you put ice on the crayon to freeze the wax. Then, you cover the stain with a washcloth and lightly press a warm iron on top to melt and lift the crayon wax.

If you get permanent or non-permanent marker stains on your carpet or upholstery, you can use rubbing alcohol to remove the stain. Just apply to the stain and then blot with a washcloth. If you don’t have rubbing alcohol on hand, you can also use oil-free hairspray to lift these stains.

Even with these handy tricks, your carpet and upholstery can really start to show wear and tear when you have kids around. So, let the carpet cleaning professionals help you out! Give us a call at Premium Care Solutions in Greenville, NC and Wilson, NC.
