Re: [BKARTS] Removing crayon from library book



I have used, with some degree of success, and without damaging the paper with solvents, a gum eraser. Success depends on the paper type, and you want to avoid smudging the crayon deeper into the paper.

Can anyone give me some advice on how to remove green crayon from one
page of a library book. My 3 1/2 year old niece drew on a $30.00 out
of print children's book and my brother wants to try to fix it.
Someone told him that lighter fluid would work?! I told him not to do
anything until I consulted with my panel of experts here. Any ideas?
Thanks
