If you have accidentally washed and dried crayons with your load of laundry, then chances are you will have crayon residue stuck on your clothes dryer drum. With a little WD-40 and some scrubbing, it should come off in no time.
Time Required: 15 Minutes
- Spray WD-40 on the damp cloth rag; do NOT spray directly into the dryer. Use caution with a gas dryer.
- Wipe the crayon marks off the inside of the drum.
- Rinse cloth rag with water. Wipe the drum with the damp cloth.
- Run dry, old rags through the dryer to make sure that all the crayon residue is gone.
- If you have a gas dryer, leave the door open to dry out for a day before running.
- WD-40 can be purchased at most grocery, hardware, or auto parts stores.
- WD-40 is flammable so use caution. Do NOT spray on or near the pilot light.
