Good morning blogvillians, today I present to you The Curse of the Blue Crayon...
This was my first glimpse of the Curse of the Blue Crayon. Yes, there was blue crayon on EVERYTHING. I was so horribly upset. I check every pocket, every possible place that a tissue or chunk of play-doh might find a home, so I don't even have the slightest idea where this chunk of crayon came from. My only conclusion is that it must have been on the floor and when I grabbed everything after the Shout application I must have scooped it up and thrown it in the washing machine. Oi Vay what a nightmare. And of course I didn't have the internet on Sunday. So someone googled crayon removal for me and told me that WD-40 looked like a popular solution. So I gave it a try. Well, it didn't work. I'm sure if I had noticed the crayon before putting everything into the dryer, it would have worked.
So now I can't get the smell of WD-40 out of the clothes. I have washed them in super hot water with vinegar a few times, then washed with detergent a few more times. But still, the smell won't come off. I imagine that being sprayed by a skunk wouldn't be as bad. So that bring me to today, I'm going to soak the clothes with some Palmolive and hope for the best. I hate crayons right now! If you have had a similar situation I would love to hear about it, and if you had any success with removing it!!!
My next crochet project is a cupcake scarf and a cupcake hat. I plan on giving the scarf to my oldest daughter and the hat to my youngest daughter on their birthdays. When I'm finished I of course will post pics and a link for the pattern I found, happy hooking!
