What every parent needs in their toddler mess survival kit, parents share stories of kids’ crazy messes

KID-ING WITH KAYLA —  “It really makes you wonder, where were the parents during this incident?” joked Kayla Sullivan before revealing her son’s permanent marker “art work” on the door of their rental home. “The likeliness that they will get their security deposit back is very low.”

Luckily, permanent marker can be removed with a few items from Kayla’s “toddler mess survival kit.”

Those include rubbing alcohol, hand sanitizer, dry erase markers, hairspray, non-gel toothpaste and nail polish remover.

Other items parents may want to include in their kit:

  • Baking soda
  • Mr. Clean Magic Erasers
  • Dawn dish soap
  • Distilled vinegar
  • Toothbrush
  • Sponges
  • Mayonnaise (full fat) – this is specifically useful to remove crayon stains
  • Microfiber cloth
