The photographs don't do justice to the mess that I had to clean yesterday. Now, I have dried chapstick before and it definitely makes a mess leaving our clothes with those dark little grease stains. However, nothing could have prepared me for the damage that three stinking crayons could do to both the dryer and the load of clothes in it. What makes the whole situation worse, it was me! I was trying to keep Keller from eating a few crayons and so I stuck them in the front of blue sweatshirt...a pocket I wouldn't think to check.
After an hour and a half of scrubbing with Comet, Orange-Glo, and vinegar the majority of the blue crayon is off the dryer.
Just for the record, I melted blue, orange, and red.
The clothes, they will never quite be the same. Will the kids wear them anyway...you betcha.
