Crayola Colored Bubbles recently headlined the Yahoo! front page because of the colored bubbles' unwashable properties when it pops near or on common surfaces i.e. clothes, walls, tables and the like. It's not unwashable per se, it's just really really hard to remove.
Seeing that other people could have difficulty searching for how to remove Crayola Colored Bubbles stains online, I gave myself the trouble of researching Crayola's stain removal tips with regards to their Colored Bubbles product.
Without further ado, here are some of the tips I found at the Crayola website itself:

How can I remove Crayola washable product stains from skin?
Although CRAYOLA washable products are water-based and designed to wash from skin and nearly all children's clothing, the dyes and pigments included in Crayola washable products react differently to various skin types, depending on a person's body chemistry. Normally, Crayola washable products can be removed from the skin by washing with soap and water. If you are unsuccessful with soap and water, try using baby wipes, baby oil or make-up remover. Since Crayola washable products are water-based, you may find that keeping the area moist with water will help to lift the stain.
If you need further assistance, please call (800) 272-9652 weekdays between 9 AM and 4 PM Eastern Time and a representative will be happy to assist you.
