Safe permanent marker removal?

Post by Dark Sol on Fri Dec 19, 2008 2:20 pm

Is it possible?
Permanent marker ink goes through the paper. If you use alcohol it will damager the paper and colored surface.

wd40 kind of messed up my plastic but the marker was so bad that it was worth it.

There's gotta be some way to get permanent market off. Will Goo Gone work? Toothpaste?

Goo Gone is excellent for removing marker and sticker off plastic, Not game box.

Goo Gone is safe for jewel cases as well. Paint thinner or highly concentrated alcohol is not safe. And it is impossible to remove marker from cardboard box w/o damaging it somehow.

Magic erasor will work but it rubs off the colors along with the marker.

In regards to the removal of permanent ink...the absolute best product on the market is called "Goof-Off" and comes in a yellow can (either spray or pour) stocked in the paint section of supermarkets. It works flawlessly to remove ink from plastic shrink wrap or cellophane with no ill effects. it removes price-tags and residue with ease. Even the metal security stickers and plastic box-like security tabs come off without a trace.

As for paper products, A little Goof-Off on a soft rag, dabbed on the inked area sucks the ink out right of the paper without damaging or discoloring the surrounding card surface.

Is Goof-Off almost the same as Goo Gone?

FYI - I used Goo Gone today and it removed permanent marker perfectly from the wrap on one of my SNES games. No need for anything else! GOO GONE!!! Smile

It was just the wrap. Try it on boxes. The paper/cardboard boxes.
