So... your kiddo channeled their inner artist with some waxy crayons on your magnetic chalkboard slate. Yikes! Good thing they're cute! Fear not – it's not ruined! We've tested a few clean-up options and we're going to show you how to remove crayon from a chalkboard.
Supplies you'll need:
- Glass Cleaner - we like Windex with Vinegar
- Microfiber Cloth
- Paper Towel
Please note: We only tested this method and supplies on our own metal chalkboards.
The key ingredient is good ol' WD-40 - it kinda melts the wax of the crayon. It was like magic! We started by applying the WD-40 to a paper towel. We gently wiped the chalkboard in a circular motion until all the crayon was gone.
If you're a little short of time and you don't want to wait for the WD-40 to dry you can quickly clean off the WD-40 with a glass cleaner (we like Windex with Vinegar) and a microfiber cloth.
Viola! Your chalkboard slate from The Type Set Co. is like new again!
