How do I remove crayon from unfinished wood?

Judah decided to decorate his playstands and kitchen. Is the Mr. Clean eraser ok for wood?

it worked fine for me and didn't hurt the wood at all - it got crayon and permanent marker off

It should work fine but some woods are softer than others.I am guessing that if play items are made out of it then it should be pretty hard stuff.

Maybe try a place on the bottom or back to be sure it won't mar the wood

Good idea..

The wood is pine, I believe.

It works wonderful and so does baby wipes. We'd use both in my classroom.

Lot of elbow greece needed

We use the Mr. Clean magic eraser on all of our surfaces that have unplanned artwork on them. So far the only thing it hasn't taken off is the dry erase marker from the wall.

If something is unfinished and you can't clean the mark off you could always try lightly sanding it with some super fine sandpaper.
