Oh the joys of parenting a toddler! You get to search online for answers to questions such as “how to remove crayon from painted walls” or, “how to remove crayon from painted wood” or, “how to remove crayon from plastic.” Layah’s a little artist, y’all, and it seems that her medium of choice is ANYTHING THAT SHOULDN’T HAVE CRAYON ON IT. Sigh…
But imagine my joy when I discovered that my newest love affair (essential oils) would also be the solution to my colorful wall problem! In my kit of oils I have lemon essential oil. It smells insanely awesome, and it also helps me with lung and sinus support and appetite suppression. Basically, it is a wonder oil.
And now I know that it can also get crayon off painted walls!
All you need to do is put a drop of Young Living lemon essential oil on a q-tip, and gently scrub the colored area. Look at what happens!
I was a little bit worried that since I was applying an oil to the walls I would be left with an oily or greasy looking residue. But since I used Young Living oils and I know that they are 100% pure and contain no additives, I had nothing to fear!
There is no residue whatsoever. I’ve used this on several painted spots in my house, all with great results. Just one more reason to fall in love with lemon!
