Any ideas on how to remove a stain from a melted crayon out of neoprene seat cover?

Crayon is a waxie type compound, heat is what put it there, heat will get most of it.
take an old cotton rag ( old pillow case ) fold it two or three times to fit over the stain, use an iron, ( like for ironing cloths ) lay it on the cloth, Don't touch the seat cove with the iron it might burn it, you need to get the cloth hot, after you have the cloth good and hot with the iron, put something heavy on the cloth, let it set for a wile, untill it cools off, then slowly remove the cloth, most of it will come out, repeat as needed.

Hope this helps.

Thank you very much for the replys. I had the black crayon in the back of the jeep because I used it to ease the rear window zipper open. I forgot it back there and then left the jeep out in the sun. My fault, cant blame it on the children. I tried goo gone first. That helped. I will hit it with heat next.

I just thought about some pasive heat, so you don't have to worry about burning the seat cove off, a heating pad will get very hot in short order, so it might work just as well as the iron would.

As for the sipper a bar of soap rubed into it will help it slide with out hang ups.

I think that if you can take the seat covers off, then put the rag on the crayon side and apply a heat gun to the other side you might have better luck. The trick is going to be not melting the neoprene.

To get wax out of upholstery and carpet use a iron and a brown paper bag, place the bag on the wax "crayon" the run the iron on it the bag with take up all the wax. And no I'm not a man wife, my children dumped a candle over in the living room, and the mother in law came over and did this.
