I was just sure that money- between a hundred and two hundred dollars of clothes was down the drain. *sigh* Not to mention the fact that I had to clean my dryer so I could dry clothes in the future without destroying them. Well, after looking around online, I found an interesting discussion on Thrifty Fun's website.
So, I know you can't ever imagine it happening to you, but in case it does
The Amazing Recipe
Run your load on hot for the longest wash cycle, and let it soak an hour. Then you're ready to check it out and if its not totally clean, just spot clean and run it again. (I only had to run my blues once! Yay!)
To clean the dryer, run it for about 5 or 10 minutes, then wipe it down with a clean wet towel and Comet. Not hard at all. Just make sure to run a load of rags before you run good clothes so that you're sure you got all the crayon. Hopefully this will never happen to you, but just in case it does I hope this helps! Hopefully there won't be too many misadventures any time soon.
