Melted Crayon Dried on Clothing

I opened my dryer and to my horror there was green crayon melted all over my kids clothes. This is what I did to get it out and it work!

Before washing I pretreated stains with Zout (off brand Shout). I just sprayed and brushed it in. Then I did a hot prewash using Thirsties cloth diaper prewash (I'm sure any prewash like Clorox 2 would work). Warm rinse. This step alone got out the lighter stains.

To wash I used:

  • hot water wash/warm water rinse
  • 2 scoops of Rockin Green Detergent (although a cap of your favorite detergent would be fine, I'm sure).
  • 1 cap Oxiclean Max Force Power Gel
  • 1/2 cup 20 Mule Team Borax
  • 1 cup Zout (off brand Shout)
  • 1 cup white vinegar

I let the wash cycle start and then turned the washer off and let the clothes soak for 30 minutes before restarting the washer. It worked and I'm very excited!
