How to remove crayon from a fridge.

As you can imagine I was not thrilled to see the artwork my two year old did on our fridge with a purple marker. I tried googling to find out how to remove it but had no real luck. What I ended up doing was mixing a paste with baking soda and water then rubbing it on with a rag to remove it. Worked like a charm! Now I can get on with cleaning the rest of my house. All of our clean bowls seem to be dirty so I am eating my steel-cut oats and local blueberries in a small mixing bowl. Maybe we are having too much fun this summer to keep up with the house work. It’s either that or I worked six days last week. Yep. I think that’s why.

Have a great day!

About stephanieough

Wife, mom, concerned citizen of the earth. Striving towards intentional living rather than blindly following. Former Education Specialist for a corporation, I have now taken a step back to spend time with my family and work closer to home. Hoping to reduce our waste through refusing, reducing and reusing so that we will not have to recycle as much. Also, I love to explore zero-waste fast food and take pictures of my sucesses. I'm a fan of British comedies like Red Dwarf and Black Adder, Kevin Smith and his movies, Asian food, documentaries, biographies and going to Las Vegas on vacation. If someone told me I could only listen to the Beatles for the rest of my life I would die happy.
