Hello there, fellow Black Hatter,
Does anyone have experience in getting crayon marks off a hat, and what do you think can be done?December 31, 2013 6:27 pm at 6:27 pm #996673☕ DaasYochid ☕Participant
Did you try steaming it?December 31, 2013 7:44 pm at 7:44 pm #996674
I don’t want to set it.December 31, 2013 7:48 pm at 7:48 pm #996675YW Moderator-29 👨💻Moderator
Removing crayon from fabric is done by putting a clean cloth over the crayon mark and rubbing a very warm iron over it. The crayon should melt onto the cloth. I’m not sure why it wouldn’t melt onto the hat as well, though so maybe check with a dry cleaners for input.December 31, 2013 9:43 pm at 9:43 pm #996677mobicoParticipant
Try ironing the underside, with the hat upside down and the crayon on the cloth. You could also try a stiff brush, and even some gentle sandpapering could work. These last two ideas I have used with success, by the way.December 31, 2013 10:00 pm at 10:00 pm #996678golferParticipant
All I can say, HaLeivi, is- Uh oh.
Really not sure you”ll have success with any of the suggestions you got, but I guess it can’t hurt to try.
Sorry to admit it but your post gave me my CR smile of the day…

If you have a plush felt hat, maybe try something abrasive, like sandpaper to rub it off (and keep the felt plush). An iron will give it a flat shine.January 1, 2014 5:50 am at 5:50 am #996681
Thanks. I guess I’ll hold off with the iron.
Don’t worry, Golfer. No one got punished. I didn’t catch him or her (probably him) in the act. But it was enough to tell him off. My feeling is that when you don’t catch them in the act they forget about it and the punishment goes to the wrong place. ???? ??? ??? ???? ???.January 1, 2014 6:06 am at 6:06 am #996682Little FroggieMember

Scrape it with a razor or brush it with a stiff wire brush. Be gentle with the brush because you don’t want to melt the wax. If you damage the surface of the felt you can renew it with sandpaper.
