How can I get crayon out of my laundry?

Somehow a crayon snuck into my dryer and now there is melted crayon all over our clothes!

It was a BIG load of clothes, too!

Does anyone know how to get it out?

I'm not sure about crayon but I've removed wax from clothing with an iron. Just lay an old rag over the waxy area and press with a dry iron...the wax should melt and absorb into the rag. Crayon can sometimes be a little tougher to get out than plain candle wax, but it might be worth a try. The pigment from the crayon can stain too...I hope that you're able to get it out!
I hate to tell you this, but I got a bit of blue crayon in a white load of laundry once, and I never did get it out. I still have a white t-shirt, some underwear, and some pillowcases around with blue smudges on them. All Sprogly's white newborn onesies had blue all over them.

heat the crayon wax with hair dryer, scrape as much as you can off with something like a credit card, and then try toothpaste or baking soda
use a baking soda paste or baking powder
