We purchased a used, refurbed upright freezer. It was delivered yesterday, and the price and other info about this freezer were written on the front with a grease pencil. The young man who delivered it said I could remove this with W-D 40. Since I didn't happen to have W-D 40 on hand, I thought, "I wonder if another lubricant might work. The only thing I had on hand that was even close was cooking oil. So I applied some to a paper towel, rubbed it over the grease pencil, and voila! A clean freezer door!
Since I am a person who loves to thrift shop, and since so many items are priced with a grease pencil, I am really happy to have found this method for removing the prices on non-porous surfaces. I hope you can use this hint in the future, too.
