Removing writing

Postby south.texas.dead.i » Sun Dec 02, 2012 1:05 pm

I got a couple discs lately through this forum that have come with writing on them names and phone numbers. What do y'all normally do to cover this up. I'm gonna put mine on there. Thanks

I usually go at it with an eraser and if that doesn't work I use some acetone. A lot of times you just won't be able to remove it though. In that event I guess you could cross out their name or dye the disc.

I use a product named Goof Off but it smells like it's made mostly of acetone. I find that on some champ or Z type plastic you can use Goof Off/ acetone and it will lighten the ink a little. On some of the harder base type plastics the marker can come off completely.

Try pure acetone. It generally works well, unless the ink has had a long time to bleed into the plastic. Keep the acetone off the top of the disc though unless you want to remove the writing on top as well.
