It’s national Scribble Day! Oh the mess that can be made while having fun scribbling. Go ahead and try it, scribbling on a piece of paper can release some built up frustration. Allow your little ones to scribble too. We try to focus on them staying in the lines when coloring or painting, and writing nicely all the time. Make that exception today and allow them to be silly and have some fun. Don’t stress if they make a mess there are ways to get crayon off practically anything by just scratching it away, ink can sometimes be a little more tricky to remove so here is a helpful cleaning hint to  remove ink from almost anything. Works wonders on wooden tables.

You Will Need:

Baking soda
Soft cloths
Cotton balls
Rubbing alcohol (optional)

Steps to Remove the Stain:

Begin by mixing water and baking soda to form a paste.

Spread the paste over the ink stain and rub it in with your fingers. Baking soda can be slightly abrasive, so avoid scrubbing too hard or it may damage the finish.

Moisten a soft cloth with plain water and scrub the area as you remove the paste.

For larger stains, repeat the steps above until all of the ink is removed.

If a haze is left on the surface from the baking soda, wipe the area with a cotton ball moistened with a small amount of rubbing alcohol to remove.
