For the record, laundry and crayons do not mix. When I woke up this morning, Krystal met me with the words "We have a problem". I washed a load of Becca's clothes yesterday including most of her new summer clothes we recent bought. When Krystal opened the dryer this morning, it was purple inside and all of Becca's clothes have purple marks with a little yellow thrown in for good measure.

Krystal kindly went on the internet to find out what to do (what did people do before google?) I sprayed everything with Shout and washed in hot water. Most of the stains did come out. I sprayed the remaining stains and am rewashing them. Hopefully that will get the remainer out. If anyone needs to know, Crayola's website has a section on how to get crayons out of various things.

She also found a site that said to put wet towels in your dryer and turn in on to get the color out of the dryer. That did not work so I guess I am going to have to try and scrub it out. Ahhh...the fun just never ends.

We had the same problem. Lori got most of the stains out with a great product called Stainz-R-Out. You can get it at Home Depot. Seriously, you have to get it and use it. It works for so many things.
