Crayola markers may be easily washable but can stay on your skin for two to three days. Permanent markers tend to stay a little longer than this. Yet, if you want to remove it immediately, choose from these different options below:

  • Apply coconut oil or baby oil directly on the stain and gently scrub to remove the mark.

  • For adults, you can try chemical-based removers.
  • You can also use sea salt as it has exfoliating properties that can help remove the stain.

Are all Crayola markers washable?

To know if your Crayola markers are washable, we recommend doing a swab test before proceeding. Try using it on a whiteboard or a little portion of the Scrubbies to check if it washes off. Many times, these markers may not be labeled as washable. So, it is essential to test before you use them for better results.

Can you wash off Crayola markers from your clothes?

Washing stains from Crayola markers on clothes is difficult, but not impossible. For heavy stains, first wash the clothes in hot water till they stop bleeding the ink. Follow this with a heavy-duty wash cycle to get rid of all the remaining stains. You can use any detergent while washing. A Crayola marker does not need special detergents. If you still see stains, continue with one or more wash cycles to completely rid your clothes of ink.

What can happen if you eat Crayola markers?

Crayola markers are not harmful if consumed in small quantities. That is because these markers do not contain any harmful chemicals. However, if your toddler consumes them in large quantities, it may induce sickness. Thus, watch out for your kids when they use these markers.
