    The septic system has in it meat fat , cooking oil, bacon fat, schit, penis lube, body oils as you sweat, hair oil, -- so motor oil won't phase it.  You will notice that soap breaks down oil, it washes off the hands.

    Your septic system holds 1000 gallons so what is a couple of DROPS?  Nothing. Or you can wipe your hands on your lawn and on a cloth rag.

    Otherwise you are "weird"

    If you get motor oil on your skin, wash with soap and water asap. Any Mild lotion can be used to help with the dryness.

    If you get motor oil on your skin, wash well with soap and water as soon as possible. A mild lotion can be used to help with the dryness. If you think someone has been exposed to motor oil, immediately call Poison Control at 1-800-222-1222 or check the webPOISONCONTROL® online tool for help.

    As far as trolling goes, you're a special kind of slow.

    Turpentine is a solvent, just like water is. Get a jug of water and do it outside. 

    The problem is that a solvent might pull (absorb) chemicals into your skin also.

    Diamond. Pure Gum Spirits of Turpentine (seems to be "food grade"). 

    Your body can take a tablespoon a day (I've heard), but perhaps more.
