Hey all, DD got a bit experimental this morning and colored on her new play kitchen which I have not gotten the chance to stain or seal yet. It is a beeswax crayon.

Does anyone have any ideas on how to get it off without damaging the unfinished wood?

I've used very fine grade sandpaper to remove crayon marks off unsealed wood. Go very gently but I would think it would be OK.

You can also try the iron method, just be careful not to get it TOO hot. Put a paper towel over it, or a piece of fabric you dont mind ruining. Then iron gently over top, moving the fabric/paper towel until most of the crayon is removed.

You can also put a hair dryer on it for a minute until it melts and then just wipe it off.

Not sure about unfished wood but otherwise: mayonnaise. Let it sit for a couple of minutes then wipe off.
