Anyone know how to get crayon off of concrete/brick?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
My child thought it would be a great idea to use crayons on our patio. It's a really nice patio that looks like brick, but I'm not sure if that's different from colored concrete....if that even matters! I used a hard bristle brush with some dish soap, no luck. Any ideas?

My friends DS coloured our fireplace bricks at our old place. This was years ago, but the only thing that I found that helped was super hot water and lots of white cloths to blot with. The hot water would soften the wax and I would blot with the cloth. More super hot water, and blot. It took forever but it did come off. I used a brick cleaner from the hardware store to lift the last layer of colour that had stained the bricks. Good luck!!

You can also try to blast the crayon with your hairdryer on high heat and use paper towels or rags to blot up the softened/melted wax.
