i made the cardinal error of not checking BC's pants before i put them in the wash. now. now, there is lots of crayon all over the clothes (mine, jools', and hers) and all inside the drum of the dryer. we're trying to get the crayon out of the dryer with WD-40 (as per the crayola site.) WD-40 is highly flammable. while i have great faith in our friends Binney and Smith and the directions from their website, i really, really am praying that things stay safe.
