Bathtub crayons = bain of my existence

Here's a little math equation for you:

"Washable?!"  Hardly.  Try "scrub-with-all-your-might."

And a certain someone - who admittedly can draw a decent cartoon of his children - is not exactly helping:

We need to have a "Moms only" website where we list these horrors. Yup, been there - done that! My brand new tub still has faint marks of little red puppies and blue hearts!

LOL, that is sooo true! When my kids were little and got those I thought they were so cool. . .until I had to clean it up. I wanted to meet the genius who invented them and color his bathtub with them, lol. That's so nice of your 34 year old artist to help ;)

Oh no! At least you have an adorable cartoon though. . . :] I'll definitely keep this in mind for the future! I'll just give my kids the foam instead :]

Try the magic eraser- it works. Oh and all our bathtub crayons had an "accident" if you know what I mean. A very tragic, tragic accident............

I ended up trying the Magic Eraser - it worked! Of course, I went through two of the erasers just to get it all off, but at least it's now clean.

DITTO, I bought those stupid things all excited about them... and put them away after one use! AWFUL!!

I am so glad there are other mothers like you out there who pave the way for me :)

*Note - do not buy those bathtub crayons.

I REALLY hate those things. It took months to get some of the crayon residue off of my tub and shower walls...I totally sympathize!

I was told to stay away from the Crayola brand bathtub crayons, but that the Alex brand actually comes off much easier.
