You can try ochre (iron oxide) for red and carbon for black You can get carbon from the bottom of a kettle or pot. It's simply the black soot. Mix them with bear grease and apply sparingly. A little goes a long way.

"Dawn" dish soap.

Cuts the grease very well.

Sweating the ochre out of your pores on monday morning PT runs was always interesting

Getting it out of your skin is easy, its the ring around the tub that is the really hard part
