Default Anyone know how to get Crayon off of a stone hearth?

Anyone? I think it is manufactured stone (like Harristone) not real stone. I've tried dishsoap and water, a magic eraser, even a bit of soft scrub.
Nada.

Any new ideas???

Try Joe Campanelli's stain remover along with a magic eraser. That stuff has worked wonders in my home!

I love De-Solv-It. I think it works wonders. Good luck!

If you have a steam mop, it should get it off.

I'm assuming you've already attempted something bristled?

DD did that to my stone hearth, so you aren't alone in this experience.

I tried all the same things you did (my favorite was trying the Magic Eraser and having it just shred to pieces), including scrubbing with an old toothbrush. My hearth is real stone though (at least I think it is, I could be wrong). What finally worked for me was using Soft Scrub, super fine steel wool, and a lot of scrubbing. It finally worked, except for a couple of crevices that I just couldn't get into - but I can't tell anymore where they were, so I must have gotten used to it or they dissapeared on their own. The bad part about that is that it was a huge mess to do it and then I had to clean off the Soft Scrub and steel wool afterwards which was a big pain. I just used rags and water to wipe it all off. If you try it, put lots and lots of towels underneath. Otherwise, I like some of the other ideas you've been given. They might do the trick while being less messy and easier to do compaired to what I did.

Good luck!
