Let's see. Try directly applying woolite to the spot, rubbing gently, and then
washing in the sink. Try a dish soap such as Ivory. I can't swear for every
pencil, but dish soap has removed many a blood stain for me, along with grease,
ink and pencil. A _very_ careful application of goo gone has removed an oil stain
from my blackwork.
Hope this helps,
