Question about Dryers
Three crayons accidently snuck into a load of clothes and melted in the dryer. How do I get it out?
If they are globs you can freeze them by rubbing with an ice cube and scrape them off. If the residue is thin like a coat of paint use denatured alcohol or paint thinner to rub them off. Make sure you leave the dryer door open several hours after using solvent inside to air it out. Do not use the dryer immediately after using solvent or there could be a fire hazard.
If the crayon residue is on the clothes, you can put piece of absorbent paper (like a paper grocery bag) over the stain and iron it. The heat will melt the crayon wax and the paper will absorb it. You may have to do it several times to get it all out. Denatured alcohol or paint thinner might be needed to get the final stain out.
