A mother suffered a rather unfortunate parenting fail after washing her child's clothes and forgetting to do a very important check.

Dr. Meadow Maze Good, who lives in Orlando, Florida, took to Twitter on Sunday to share a picture of her son's shorts.

The stone-coloured garment was covered in obvious pink marks after her young son left some crayons in his pockets.

Meadow captioned the picture: "Mom fail. I didn’t check pockets. Now most of my kids clothes look like this from @Crayola crayons.

"Any advice? I might have cried. #moms #parenting #OhNo #children #motherhood."

Her followers were quick to comment on the tweet, with some giving her advice on how to get the stains out.

"One time as a kid I melted a crayon into the car back seat and my dad used Windex and it actually worked," one person replied.

A second suggested: "Tie dye everything!" while a third replied: "My advice: if you leave crayons in your pockets, you get to wear clothes like this. This is the reason I wash my clothes separately."

Another person told Meadow that all is not lost and wrote: "Yard work and art work clothes!!".

The mum replied: "I just bought these clothes because my son is growing sooo fast!!!"

A fellow Twitter user shared a link to the official Crayola website where they have a page titled: "How to remove Regular Crayons from fabric – fresh, heat-set, or melted."

Crayola advise: "Scrape off as much crayon as possible.

"Apply liquid dish soap and work into the stained area.

"Let stand a few minutes, rub fabric under warm water to remove the stain."

The advice adds: "Machine wash using the heavy soil setting and the hottest water the fabric will allow with OxiClean or Clorox 2.

"Allow to air dry. Repeat as needed."
