    Question:

    Could you please advise me as to the best and most effective way to remove crayon marks from a natural brick fireplace? Any input will be greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance!



    Answer:

    Hmm. Could be a tough one. I'm trying to think of what solvent would work for wax, which is the base for crayons. Most waxes are oil-based, so it's possible that an oil-based paint thinner or lacquer thinner would do the job.

    It's also possible that steel wool, light sandpaper or a wire brush will take it off without a solvent. Assuming that it's natural brick as stated, these should do no harm to the finish
