PSA Tasty Purple Crayons Won't Stain Your Diapers

My daughter had a little friend over playing - and I was trying to keep track of them and take care of my nine month old son.  I thought I was doing a fair job.  Then I looked down at my son - as I was carrying him down the stairs.  He had purple smeared all over his little baby face.  While I was holding him, he had been happily munching on one of his sister's purple crayons - and I hadn't even noticed.  Needless to say, I felt like Mom of the Year.

Right away, I did a finger sweep and got any large pieces out of his mouth.  Then I cleaned up his face.  I didn't really think he'd swallowed much - if any of the crayon. 

But later, after I'd nearly forgotten about the incident, Miles filled a diaper for me.  As I was rinsing it, I noticed these pretty little purple patches.  Lots of purple crayon pieces intermixed with the poo.  I laughed.  Apparently he'd eaten more than I thought.  I tossed the diaper into the wash with all the other dirty diapers and it came out without a spot.  Bright white - like always.  The white T-shirt I had been wearing didn't fare as well and I still have a purple stain on the front from his crayon drool. 

That crayon was no match for the suedecloth lining of the KaWaii one size.

LOL sounds like something I would have happen! I think we need suede cloth t-shirts!

Very cute. My mother didn't believe me the other day when we noticed teal dotting my son's diaper, and I knew right away it was the tooth marked crayon that I had found earlier.

That is a funny one. I can't believe what will come out of the diapers when you wash them!

When my oldest was a baby he got into my oil pastels and munched on one. His kissaluv he was wearing and filled with the brightly colored poop came clean with no stain after a sunning.

Any ideas how to get crayon out when it does stain? I just washed an entire load of diapers...Blueberries, Rumparooz, Kawaii, BGs, Happy Heineys....and apparently there were crayons somewhere, because they are covered in marks!!
