How do you get crayon out of carpet?

First try freezing it with ice-cubes in a bag then trying to scrape as much off as possible with a blunt knife.

Try turps or dry-cleaning fluid and sponge and blot (test first).

Cleaners with citrus based oils also help.

I have used a combination of the above to remove a large black melted crayon stain from cream carpet - even if I had to work at it for a while!
