Hello, Does anyone know a safe & easy way to remove sharpie from CE type plastic? It seems that even though slick to the touch this type of plastic must be quite porous, therefore absorbing more of the ink. So far I've tried Acetone, Isopropyl alcohol (not the kind you drink), carburetor cleaner, Goof Off, laquer thinner, paint thinner, & Bix Stripper. None of these remove all of the ink. If anyone knows of a product that works I would be MOST appreciative. Thank you, Dendog ;>}

Its not coming off Can you wash a tattoo ? it there forever
Thanks, most helpful!
I've never had any luck getting it all off ... just faded enough so it doesn't confuse someone who might find it ... and you can read my name/number/PDGA#. Basically, I don't throw those discs where i might loose one.

Good luck!

Thanks, I'll give those a try. I already know about the elbow grease part, I have made blisters rubbing on some of these stubborn markings! Peace, Dendog ;>}
no way will you get all that sharpie off. impossible as far as i can imagine. the ink is in the plastic. give up now.
I think that some..uh..acitone will work?

It takes spray paint off of discs
it really depends on how long the sharpie has been on the disc. If it's been there for awhile, you will never get it fully gone.

good luck
The squids use bug spray and if the sharpie has not dyed the plastic, it will come off.
Give those discs back to the people with their name on them!
Goo Gone, (not to be confused with Goof Off) works wonders if you let it sit on the ink for a minute and then slowly erase without smudging with some sort of cotton or q-tip. As others have mentioned, if the ink is deep then its too late.
Try so Borax soap. Haven't used it myself but I've heard it works. Good luck.

I'm trying to get the ink off some of my own discs, but thanks for your input!
