Re: [teacherartexchange] photo transfer- citrasolve

Every classroom should have CitraSolve for a variety of reasons. It is safe
to use on skin and hair (chewing gum, anyone?) and removes all kinds of
surprising things, like tar off the seat of your pants (don4t ask). There is
a similarly safe product called Citrus D-Solv-It. I think Ace carries it as
well. Beware of products that tout citrus in their ingredients as they are
NOT suitable for use on skin (Home Depot has quite a few of those). They are
petroleum-based and should state they cannot be used on skin.
