    Cool Okay all you clever mums!

    Mackenzie has drawn with crayon all over her table and chairs. An ordinary wipe with a cloth and Ajax hasn't done the trick - any ideas?

    The joys hey. Maybe some good old gumption if you have any. I've found it works wonders on most things.

    OMG I wish they had gumption round here... Cant find it... there used to be a Big Kev brand but round here they either sell it fast cos i can never find it or they just dont stop it. They have these special sponges you can buy not sure if they work.

    Are the table/chairs plastic? WD-40 is appareotnly the best, my mum used to swear by it LOL! Then clean that off with some detergent.

    the magic eraser things that chux do are great for things like that BUT the trick is to wipe over it in very light circles, if u scrub the cr*p out of it the will lift the paint and you'll end up with a dull patch

    Gumption has always worked pretty well.

    The best though is the Crayola washable crayons - DD has drawn over furniture, walls, upholstery, clothes etc and it just comes off with a damp cloth. Awesome!!

    try a bit of vinegar and bicarb if you have any lying around...

    Go through this list and try one by one, hopefully you will find something that works

    Found this solution online

    To remove crayon marks from wooden furniture. rub some mayonnaise into the crayon mark. Let it soak in for a few minutes, then rub the area clean with a damp cloth.
    Not sure whether it would work though... maybe try more googling "crayon remove wood"

    I was going to say Magic Eraser too. I am kind of addicted to them.. Leasha actually put me onto them ages and ages ago in a thread that I had about removing marks, and now I use them on everything - mainly the wall outside our bathroom which DS has an obsession with drawing on
