RE: Printmaking help--try citrasolve

One word of caution. We use a citrus cleaner for crayons/oil pastels off of
surfaces. One day I used it, and ten minutes later my hands had blown up
like a balloon. I am mildly intolerant of citrus (I can eat small amounts,
but eating several oranges in one day will cause a mild reaction). I never
thought about the concentration of citrus in the cleaner causing a topical
reaction. Check with the students if they are even mildly allergic have them
wear vinyl gloves when handling citrus cleaners.

Citrus cleaners are a solvent for oil based products. I use this in cleaning
bicycle parts and to degrease chains etc. Non toxic and biodegradable. You
can get a concentrated solution to thin with water and use from a local bike
