Did your little one make the wall his or her personal canvas for crayon artwork? Take a deep breath — then grab the toothpaste.

Non-gel toothpaste contains mild abrasives (like baking soda) that gently take crayon marks off walls without damaging the paint or the wall itself. So it's going to be your best friend in this situation. Just follow the steps below.

Materials needed

  • Non-gel toothpaste
  • Clean toothbrush
  • Damp cloth

Steps

  1. Squeeze some non-gel toothpaste on a toothbrush.
  2. Gently rub the toothbrush onto the crayon marks. The crayon should start to disappear.
  3. Once the crayon is completely gone, wipe the toothpaste away with a clean, damp cloth.

Crisis averted!
