Our dining room chairs are wood with built-in cream color cushions. My 3 y/o son decided to color the cushion so now there's red, blue, and purple marks. How do I remove those stains? Thanks.

I would say, you could try 409 usually works on crayons.

Try a "Tide To Go" stain stick.
It removes a lot of stuff successfully. At least I have had a lot of success with it.

Good luck,

*in the future, buy those "washable" Crayola crayons, which is made to wash out.
