|Look Teacher! I drew you a picture on the wall!|
After a successful day in the preschool classroom you are sure to give yourself a pat on the back. Then, there it is! The reason why the children were giggling behind the book case...a lovely but not so practical wall mural of crayon and marker scribbles.
Has this ever happened to you? Don't hide it behind that poster! We have teacher tips that will clean up lots of messes without using harsh chemical.
Removing Permanent Marker and Crayon:
|Zap marker stains away!|
What It Cleans: This cleans painted walls, wood, and porcelain.
The Procedure: Buff a bit of toothpaste over the marker and let it set a few minutes. Then wipe it off with a soapy damp cloth.
How to Make Your Own Baby Wipes For The Kids:
Materials Needed: Paper towels (Viva works the best), A round plastic container with a seal-able lid, a sharp serrated knife, cups of boiled water, 2TSPS of baby shampoo or baby wash (smells divine, doesn't it?), 1 TSP baby oil.
The Procedure: Cut paper towels in half with your knife and remove the cardboard tubing. After the boiled water is room temp. mix all your liquid ingredients and place in the plastic container. Now sit the paper towels in the solution and let is set for ten minutes....then place the lid on and flip it to set for another ten minutes. Hum-dee-dum-dee-dum....
Voila!: Sit it right side up and be sure to pull from the center of the roll to get your wipees. Always keep it sealed tightly to prevent dry out. Just save the next roll for next time you make a new batch! Tre' Frugal!
What It Cleans: Great for outdoor adventures,the messy lunch bunch, and sticky little hands everywhere!
