For anybody who is looking at removing pencil from white melamine I have found that Glitz Power Paste works a treat.
I tried a number of different things but found that the Glitz was the best by a long shot. Just wipe a little paste on with a soft cloth and the pencil is gone. No scrubbing required, just a wipe.
I think I may have purchased it from Bunnings. Photos are likely upside down thanks to Apple thinking it knows best!

Thanks for tip.
Have you tried those little white “magic sponge” cleaning thingies? They’re my de-graphiting implements of choice.
Nothing succeeds like a budgie without a beak.
I use lacquer thinner. It seems to get underneath the graphite/wax and sort of float the pencil off. I've noticed that finishes like Watco and MinWax Antique Oil Finish seem to lift pencil off of white oak. I made some not squares for marking hand cutting dove tails and wanted the angle on after I finished the not squares. The MAOF floated the pencil out of the white oak.
When SWMBO said "I won't cook in metric."
The metric system died in the US.
Wd40, spray, wipe off, wipe down with soapy rag to remove wd40. Done.
Glad to here that there are some other options. I just tried what I had at hand before coming across the one mentioned.
Some of the failed that I can remember included:
I have also used "Gumption Paste" - can buy from Woolworths, works well.
Turps always worked just fine for me
I have always used just a regular eraser.
Just do it, and have fun
Yes, I use an eraser too.
