Will crayon stained clothes ruin my other clothes?

A crayon in the dryer ruined a whole load of my son's clothes. I want to keep some of them even though they are covered in crayon stains. If I wash and dry them with other non-stained clothes, will the stains (the color or the waxiness) transfer to the good clothes?

I'm not looking for stain removal tips. There are seriously dozens of tiny stains on some of the pants and it is not worth it to me to spend any amount of time scrubbing a pair of $8 jeans.
However, I can live with them being stained forever and used as play clothes, as long as they don't ruin other clothes.
Any experiences with this either way?
