How To Remove Crayons Stains From Silk
Silk generally should be dry cleaned. Always follow garment label instructions when pretreating and laundering your clothes. For colored garments, test an inside seam for colorfastness.
If the garment is washable, harden crayon wax with ice. Remove surface wax with a dull knife. Place crayon stain between clean paper towels and press with a warm iron. Replace paper towels regularly to absorb more wax and to prevent transferring the stain. Once most of the wax is absorbed into the towel, sponge remaining stain with Purex® Complete with Zout® detergent or Fels Naptha laundry bar soap then blot with paper towel. Let dry, wash with Purex® detergent in the warmest water recommended on the garment label. Avoid cleaning silk with laundry products containing enzymes. Note: If any color remains, relaunder with a color safe bleach (if recommended for the garment). If dry clean only, take it to the dry cleaner for stain removal.
