    What will this kool aid do to the poor kids pipes? Maybe it might embalm them from the inside so they last longer. :eek:

    Ah damn. I need tips to get crayon off a wooden door and chalk off the walls. :( Guess one thing is true, that I didn't follow. Do not turn your back when there is a 2 yr old up and about. :(

    Hey there, Crayon is made from wax so try the one about putting kitchen paper over the wax and ironing it. As for the chalk, hell just a sponge and some water sound get that out!;)

    Crayon is made from a different kind of wax, then that of candles. The iron trick doesn't work. It was my first attempt, but I didn't do it long since the door is solid wood. Don't want to leave an iron mark on the door. The chalk is pink. Water will make is smear and leave a nasty mark. Already did that too. :(

    Use WD-40 to remove adhesive, works on things you don't want to damage, safe on paint. :)
