Acetone...

I've heard that pure acetone will take off anything from a disc. Does it clear those soaked-in ghost permanent marker stains? Rubbing alcohol does nothing on this stuff.

It depends on the type of the marker. Another thing that works great for taking scuffs and some marker off is the magic erasers by mr clean. Those things are great!

Acetone does a good job at taking some of the designs off.
I actually mix some of my dyes with acetone to make em pierce the plastic more and give deeper color.

It'll get a lot of stuff out, but some stuff it'll just fade down cuz its almost too permanent.

Goo Gone works great! Just spray it on and let it set for 5 minutes or so-repeat if needed!
