Kids are cute and they get away with almost anything. Sometimes they feel like expressing their creativity by drawing on the walls with your favorite lipstick. Other times they consider your couch needs some redecorating and do that with some chocolate.
That’s just their way of expressing their creativity and you should let them do that as they need to express freely in order to build their personality and find their passion.
How to clean up their “creativity”?
If we’re talking about chocolate, if it’s a thick stain, gently scrape the excess off with a knife. Or something sharp.
Refrigerate it for 10 to 15 minutes to keep the stain from spreading when trying to scrape it.
Massage laundry detergent into the stain using your fingers or a soft brush and soak it for a few good minutes before placing it into the washer.
If the stained material is white, you can use peroxide and white vinegar to act as stain remover. Or you can rub the stain with a mixture made from these two ingredients before washing it.
You can use distilled white vinegar alone if we’re talking about the couch or chair cushion.
If we’re talking about crayon or water-color stains, it’s the same thing. Leave the stained garments to soak in hot water and detergent, and you can also add some baking soda in there. After soaking for a few minutes, gently rub the stain and soak until the stain is gone or nearly gone. Wash it in the washing machine as usual.
If the crayon and water marks are on the wall, gently wipe with a soft microfiber cloth with water. Don’t rub.
