Think that coffee stain or oven gunk won't budge? Try these strategies for cleaning a dozen common messes, from crayon on the walls to candle wax on tables.
Wood: Slather mayonnaise on your child's artistic masterpiece and let it set for 10 minutes. The combination of oil and egg dissolves the crayon wax, so you can wipe it clean with a cloth.
Walls: Squeeze non-gel toothpaste onto a soft damp cloth and lightly scrub until the scribbles are gone. Similar to the way toothpaste removes plaque from teeth without damaging enamel, its mild abrasives eradicate wax without stripping paint.
