So I got a new number and now I need to change all the numbers on my discs. I know that something like acetone would do the job, but I worry about what kind of chemicals can be used on a disc without messing up the plastic. Any suggestions?

this is the third time i believe that this question has been asked. Goof Off is still my answer
i used barsol - a solvent used in our printing plant....worked like a charm - very strong fumes, use gloves.
Goo Gone uses citrus and works well if you let it soak in for a few minutes. Wipe out with cotton.
Don't use anything toxic, like goof off. Stuff is bad for you!
Put an x on the other number. Write the new one.
Over time the old one will wear out.
Always wear gloves if attempting to clean with any solvent!
Ask any disc manufacturer the plastic is porous. The ink is absorbed into it.
The only way to really remove anything is a belt sander?!!!
Be earth and body freindly....don't use solvents!!! The citrus based cleaners are safer then solvents.
I find this to be true more times that not about names in a disc, just cross out the old number and write in the new one

The plastics that we all love to throw are very far from earth friendly. Why feel guilty over a little cleaning agent?
I like to clean my discs with some WD-40. they get all clean and shiny!!!

haha./jk. but I'm guessing a little wd40 would take some sharpie off a disc fairly easy. anyone ever try it?
Some plastics are easier to clean than others. For example, I have not found anything that gets Sharpie off of the Star variety.

Wow!! That is an incredibibly good point....I mean That!!! ...and point well taken. However, it doesn't change my stance on everyday consumer usage of solvents.

Acetone will.
beware using strong citrus cleaners on Innova pro putters.....got a Pig which I tried to remove the factory stamp with a citrus cleaner( wanted to add my own colorful design and make it more visible for snow rounds) and it kinda melted on top and roughed the flight plate.
