At the end of every Who Knew? podcast, we like to bring you a Lifehack Lightning Round, where we name as many tips as possible for one particular household item. In our newest episode, the item was crayons! Here are the ingenious lifehacks we know (off the top of our heads), for the uses of crayons, plus a tip for cleaning crayon marks off the wall.
Make a Giant, Multicolored Crayon
Have a bunch of crayon stubs? Make a big crayon with them! Peel off any labels, then place in a muffin tin or other oven-safe dish and heat at 350 degrees until melted. Let cool.
Follow the same directions as above, but place a wick in the crayons right before they cool!
Fix Scratches and Nicks
Replace scratches in the floor or your car by finding a corresponding crayon color and filling them in! Or, if you have a chip in a vase, melt down part of a crayon to fill in the gap. No one will ever notice!
How to Get Rid of Crayon Marks
If you have crayon marks on walls or elsewhere, use some white, non-gel toothpaste to rub it off. It's in on a material like plastic, you can use WD-40 spray instead.
