How Do I Get Crayon Out Of My Clothes Dryer?
When crayons go through the dryer, they melt. The melted crayon dries to the inside of the dryer. As soon as you find the crayon, remove it. Once the crayon hardens, it is harder to remove. It’s still removable, it just may take longer. WD-40 removes the crayon. The amount of time and cleaner it takes to remove the crayon depends on how thick it is. The crayon on the dryer can melt and get onto clothes while they are drying. Spray a cloth or sponge with WD-40. Spray it away from the dryer opening. According to howtocleanstuff.net, spraying the chemical into the dryer runs the risk of the chemical entering the inner parts of the dryer and causing a fire. Scrub the crayon off with the rag. Pour 2 to 4 drops of liquid dishwashing soap into a bowl. Fill with water. Dip a clean sponge into the soapy water. Wipe down the inside of the dryer to remove the WD-40. Let it dry. Feel the inside of the dryer drum. It shouldn’t feel slick or oily. If it does, wash again.
