Crayon on an Unfinished Dresser

I'm new here and am looking for some help removing crayon and marker on my unfinished dresser. I tried a piece of sandpaper a while back but it just left scratches. Maybe I need a special kind of sandpaper?

Have you tried a Mr. Clean magic erase sponge? You'd be amazed at what that thing will erase!

Not sure about the marker, but WD40 works wonders on crayon marks...good luck!

Try using a hairdresser on the crayon... when it heats it up, the melted wax should wipe right off.

Is the magic eraser ok to use on unfinished wood?

Editor's Note: I think it would be fine but it might be best to test it in a place that won't show first.
