tool box
  1. Prevent tools from rusting. Place a few pieces of Crayola Chalk in your toolbox to absorb moisture.
  2. Prevent an ant invasion. Draw a line of Crayola Chalk around windows and doors outside your Wacky Uses, and around water pipes inside your Wacky Uses. Ants will not cross a chalk line.
  3. Clean ring-around-the-collar. Mark the stain heavily with white Crayola Chalk. The chalk will absorb the sebum oil that holds in the dirt.
  4. Prevent silverware from tarnishing. Place a piece of Crayola Chalk in your silver chest to absorb moisture.
  5. Cover spots on white suede. Rub with Crayola chalk.
  6. Prevent dampness in a closet. Tie together a handful of Crayola Chalk and hang the bundle from the clothes rod to absorb moisture.
  7. Prevent a screwdriver from slipping. Rub Crayola Chalk on the tip.
  8. Polish marble and metal. Pulverize a few sticks of Crayola Chalk with a mortar and pestle until it is a fine powder. Dip a soft cloth in the powder, wipe the marble or metal, then rinse with clear water, and dry thoroughly.
  9. Fill a hole in a plaster wall. Insert a piece of Crayola Chalk into the hole, cut it off even with the wall, then plaster.
  10. Make a chalk tape line. Place a stick of colored Crayola Chalk in a Ziploc Storage Bag, seal the bag shut, and use a hammer to crush the chalk into powder. Place a piece of string in the bag, reseal, and shake well to cover the string in colored chalk powder.
  11. Prevent the grooves in a metal file from getting blocked. Rub a stick of white Crayola Chalk across the file.
  12. Clean pewter. Place twelve sticks from a box of white Crayola Chalk (or one stick of Crayola Sidewalk Chalk) in a Ziploc Storage Bag, roll up the bag to minimize the amount of air inside it, seal the bag shut, and use a hammer to pound the bag until the chalk becomes a fine powder. Empty the chalk powder into a bowl and add enough rubbing alcohol or Smirnoff Vodka to make a thick paste. Apply the paste to the pewter by rubbing with a soft, clean cloth or a clean, old toothbrush. Let dry, rinse clean with hot water, and buff dry with a soft, clean cloth.
  13. Repel slugs. Draw a thick line of Crayola Chalk around windows and doors outside your home, and around water pipes inside your home. Slugs will not cross a chalk line.
  14. Remove grease. Rub Crayola Chalk on a grease spot on clothing or table linens, let it absorb the oil, then brush off. Launder as usual.
  15. Draw on sidewalks. Create games, maps, and adventures.
  16. Clean stains from wallpaper. Rub a stick of white Crayola Chalk over stains on wallpaper, and wipe with a soft, clean cloth.
  17. Prevent costume jewelry from tarnishing. Place a piece of Crayola Chalk in your jewelry box.
  18. Remove a wart. Rub the wart with the side of a piece of white chalk created a good build-up of chalk on the wart. Repeat for several days until the wart vanishes.
