AS PARENTS, we all want to encourage our children’s creative side.
That’s why one mum decided to buy some ‘washable’ crayons for her son to use in the bath, but she was left fuming when she couldn’t get them off.

Mum-of-two, Cait Regan, shared the video on TikTok, where it went viral with over one million views.
The mum explained that she had bought a set of non-toxic crayons made of beeswax on Amazon for him to use in the bathtub.
The crayons are supposed to be washable, so she let her son go crazy drawing over the bathtub and walls.
But after the event, she soon realised they weren’t as easy to get off as the product description said.
Cait said: “So I thought that I would be the fun mum and get my son these organic, non-toxic beeswax bath crayons, so they come off super easily with warm water.
“No they f***ing don’t.
“And this is what the bath tub looks like now.”
She then shows the bathtub and her son’s artistic creation and exclaims ‘WHAT.’
Her bathroom is now covered in her son’s drawings and doodles, which she had tried to scrub off to no avail.
She also tried a magic eraser, which was unsuccessful in removing the crayon.
Cait joked in a comment: “I’ve retired from the crunchy life from now on I’m getting the extra paraben, extra red 40 dye, extra fragrance anything.”
Viewers of the video were left in hysterics, recalling their own issues with ‘wash off’ crayons and some suggested she used sealant to keep the artwork up.
One person wrote: “Put sealant over it and embrace the art forever.”
“SAME!! Took some real elbow grease to scrub off!” Another person added.
A third said: “I had to scrub with a rag and HOT water for EVERRRRR. Some also stained!!!”
Cait is yet to update her followers on TikTok as to whether she managed to get the crayon offCredit: TikTok/@caitregan
