Whats the best way to remove Ink/Sharpie

No worries not a disc thief here, just do alot of trading for disc online. So I traded a with a guy who said ink on edge of disc, I didn't think he was talking about the top plate. So anybody know a good way to remove the ink so I can slap a dye on these disc. (outside of dying it black lol)

It may not come off but try 100% acetone or goo-gone.

I've heard through a buddy who dyes a lot that this process works wonders, though I've never tried it personally.

Mark the area with dry erase marker.
After letting it sit for a minute, wipe it with denatured alchohol.
Finally, put some elbow grease into it with a WHITE eraser. (he was adamant about it being white)

Again, never done it myself. But heard it works wonders.

The dry erase marker method is basically just acetone with a few extra steps; very similar to carefully drawing over the ink with fresh sharpie, then wiping it off with acetone. Denatured alcohol won't really do anything for sharpie on a disc. Wiping with acetone and then scrubbing with a magic eraser is the most effective to do it, and if it doesn't work, then the ink has probably set too far into the plastic to be fully removed.
