Three ways to remove wax crayons from walls-

Have the kids been using your walls as a colouring book? Fear not, these 3 simple and quick tips should remove all marks and artwork that has been involuntarily added to your walls.

 

Baking Soda-

Reader’s Digest offers many different solutions to crayon on walls. The first of which is baking soda. Simply get a damp cloth dipped in baking soda and then scrub the crayon off the walls. This should remove the crayon in no time with minimal effort.

 

WD-40 –

Katelyn Fagan recommends spraying WD-40 on a paper towel and spreading over larger areas of crayon covered walls should be very effective to remove the crayon off the walls. Although effective this method is advised to be used with caution. The WD-40 leaves a not so pleasant smell and an oily residue on the walls. To wash this off simply use hot soapy water and wash down the walls.

 

Glass cleaner –

Using ammonia based glass cleaner seems to be good at removing crayon from walls. This recommendation also comes from Katelyn Fagan who says the spray cleans off almost all the crayon and also recommends to spray it and let it sit for a couple minutes for increased effectiveness.

 

The scary crayon marks should be no longer after using these tips. Follow our blog for more helpful tips and tricks to help you through.

Bespoke Service

We are not happy until you are! Your cleaner will usually tailor their services to fit exactly with your requirements, including spring cleaning and ironing.

Peace of Mind

Only 1 in 50 applicants makes it on to our carefully screened database. We interview them twice, visit them in their own homes and take up at least two references. And if they still subsequently don't measure up to your standards, we will send you someone who does.

Personal Cleaner

We don't operate in teams, and therefore you get the same cleaner every week. This is good because you develop a relationship with your cleaner. We have some clients who have had the same cleaner for years and years - and that's what we want for you.

COVID-19 5th January Update

 

Just to let you know we are open for business as usual and you can continue to have your cleaner clean your house.

The government has made it clear that cleaners are still permitted to work inside peoples' homes as long as Government Guidelines on social distancing and staying safe are followed (see below). In summary:

You can be outside of your home for work purposes where your place of work remains open and where you cannot work from home, including if your job involves working in other people's homes.

The full text can be found here New National Restrictions from 5 January (in England; there are similar texts available for Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland). Specifically relating to cleaners, the guidance continues: 'This guidance applies to those working in, visiting or delivering to home environments. These include, but are not limited to, people working in the following areas:

  • 'This can include work in other people's homes where necessary - for example, for nannies, cleaners, social care workers providing support to children and families, or tradespeople (this is not an exhaustive list)'

Note this guidance is for people who are fit and well, and is dependent on the following social distancing guidelines being followed:

  • No work should be carried out in a household where people are isolating or where an individual is being shielded.
  • The cleaners can continue work, providing that they are well and have no symptoms. No work should be carried out by a cleaner who has coronavirus symptoms, however mild, or when someone in their own household has symptoms.
  • No work should be carried out in a household where any occupants are clinically extremely vulnerable to coronavirus, or households with a possible or confirmed case of coronavirus.
  • Whilst in the house. a cleaner should maintain a safe distance of at least two metres from any household occupant at all times, and ensure good ventilation in the area where they are working, including opening the window.
  • Upon entering the home, cleaners should wash their hands using soap and water for 20 seconds.
  • Cleaners should wash their hands regularly, particularly after blowing their nose, sneezing or coughing, and when leaving the property.

The good news with regard to cleaning is that the cleaners can social distance from their clients very easily, and we would advise that, if you are at home when they are there, that you remain in a separate room to your cleaner.

If you are happy to adhere to the government guidelines - and if your cleaner has not been in touch already - then please just call the office and we will ensure that your cleaning continues.

Best regards
