You did not state if the crayons are on the upholstery, on the carpet or maybe on the window ledge. Different surfaces will be treated in different ways.

Here are the basic steps.

1) Remove whatever you can with no liquids. Maybe a scraper, knife, bone spatula, edge of a tablespoon or whatever to remove it. Often it helps to use one of those cans of freeze spray (sometimes used for gum removal) to get the wax hard which makes it easier to break up and scrape off.

2) Use the iron and paper bag trick just like removing was from a carpet. Keep the heat very low. The upholstery is likely to be olefin. Keep repeating this until no more wax or color can be removed.

3) Use RedZONE to remove any remaining color from the carpet or upholstery.

Is olefin the most popular fiber used in automotive interiors?
