Coloring in the Bathtub
My son and I colored in the bathtub with those tub "crayons" (which come off very easily if you wipe it off right away.) Well, I colored a picture of Elmo that my son wanted to leave up, and I didn't see any harm in it. Weeks later, I tried to clean it and it will NOT come off. I've used bleach, magic eraser, and just general cleaning products. Any ideas or experience with this??? Thanks

You may want to contact the maker of the crayons to let them know of the issue and to see if they have had any other complaints. Perhaps they can suggest something to remove it.
Regardless, they need to be aware of the issue so they can perhaps address it in future batches.

The only way I could get it off when we did that was to color over the whole thing with them and then use those nylon stoneware/glasscooktop scrapers.
Good luck :)

When I lived in my old apt my daughter used the red crayon and I didn't clean it up right away. I Never could get it off. I used comet though and it lightened it up alot. Good luck.

Yes. I have been lazy about cleaning the tub (not at my child's request I'll admit. Just lazy. lol) after the kids colored with them. They do stain. Especially the colors with red in them. I haven't found anything that worked to get it off besides just waiting for it to wear off, by I know someone who swears by denture cleaner on anything that can be bleached. You might try that. ;)

You might also try getting a pumice stone specifically for cleaning bathtubs. I got mine at Wally for about $2. My tub is very old and the finish has gotten very worn so nothing comes off easliy. However, this will get things of that nothing else will.
It's in the cleaning aisle where the gloves, scrubbers, etc. are.
