Removing Crayon Marks

Take crayon off painted walls or washable wallpaper:
Spray with multipurpose lubricating oil (dont let it drip
on the floor). Then gently wipe, using a paper towel or
clean white cloth. If mark is stubborn, sprinkle a little
baking soda on a damp sponge and gently rub in a
circular motion. If lubricants residue remains, dampen
a sponge with a solution of one or two drops of mild
dish-washing liquid to one cup water. Squeeze out
sponge and gently rub in a circular motion. Rinse
sponge; lightly moisten with water to go over area;
dry with a clean cloth.
