My 5 year old left a brown crayon in one of her pockets. I didn't check her pockets, and when I washed and dried that load of clothes it melted to the side of my dryer. I got it off the inside of the dryer, but it stained several items of clothing in that load.
I need to know how to get it out of the clothes. I really don't want to have to make dust rags out of all of them. Thanks in advance.

I remember my mother getting candle wax out of a table cloth when I was younger. She used brown paper. She put the brown paper over the tablecloth where the wax was and ironed it out. The iron must not steam. The heat melted the wax and the brown paper absorbed it. This she repeated till all the wax was out. (01/15/2010)
You can remove the crayon easily with Lestoil. Saturate every spot with Lestoil and leave to soak for at least 6 hours. Wash in hot water and detergent. The spots will be gone. (01/16/2010)
