Crayon is a greasy, waxy substance and can be tricky to remove, especially if it is melted into the carpet. If a crayon is left on the floor and exposed to prolonged direct sunlight, or if a crayon is left in a car on a hot day, the crayon will melt and spread deep into the carpet fibers. As you begin to remove the crayon from the carpet, it may take an extra bit of patience and care to fully extract the greasy residue. Professional carpet cleaners may encounter crayon spots in carpet in homes, schools, vehicle interiors—essentially anywhere a child is likely to bring a pack of crayons along.
Warning: Always test materials for colorfastness, follow label directions, and never mix products unless specified in the label directions. Each situation reacts differently and results may vary.
