All those budding artists in the house, and one of them is sure to take the lesson on cave wall paintings to heart. After enough ‘murals’ you have to get out the cleaning supplies. I’ve scrubbed my share of art off the walls.
Here’s a tip that makes clean-up of Crayon so easy, it’s almost fun. Almost.
The secret? WD-40. Yep, you just need to squirt a little WD-40 on a paper towel and wipe the crayon marks right off the wall. The crayon wipes off almost as easy as those clean-up commercials. (It doesn’t work on colored pencil, paint, food, mud, etc. Or on flat paint either.) If you’re really crazy curious, go ahead and experiment on an out of the way wall – just don’t let your kids see you.
I need help and some good ideas from you! Do you have a bit of advice for other homeschooling parents? Something that has worked well for you lately? Chores? Cleaning Tips? Bargains? Favorite websites?
Here’s the place to post it – Please help us all out by sharing a short, one paragraph tip in the comment section that you think would help other parents.
(Feel free to link to your blog – I’m happy to help spread the word about great blogs.)
