The other day I was talking to someone who grew up at a dairy where they
use livestock crayons all the time---she said the grease crayon is
oil-based and so if you use oil to get it off, it will dilute and break
down the crayon and float the orange (or blue or yellow) color right off
without drying out the skin or causing irritation. She said any
oil---baby or vegetable or WD-40---will work.
