How to Remove Crayon from Cellular Shades
If you have young children it is almost inevitable that they will use their crayons for than just the paper it was intended. Although they are great insulators, because cellular shades are made from fabric they can stained. Fortunately they are easy to clean.
First try to remove as much as the excess crayon chunks from the cell shades. Use a dull tool such as a spatula.
Create a simple stain remover solution by mixing about 1 tsp. of liquid dish detergent and a quart of water. Using a clean rag, get the rag wet in the solution and dab the crayon stain. Be careful not to rub hard on cell shades as it can damage the fabric and make it "ball up". Continue to dab the stain until it no longer removes from the honeycomb shades.
If the stain is still on the fabric shades you may try some more aggressive techniques. If the shades can be laundered you might try filling a sink or tub with some mild detergent and placing the shades inside. Using a rag gently rub the stain.
Remove the shades from the water, rinse with fresh water and allow to dry before re-hanging them.
