Ink removal

I just traded around and got a cpl discs today and I want to remove the old name and number that's been written with a Sharpie. What is something I can use that won't hurt the disc

Acetone will lighten it, but as already stated, it's there to stay.
You can artfully block it out w/ a sharpie or use dye to cover it.

That's why I only use a silver sharpie to mark my discs.
Easy to remove if I decide to trade/sell it.

That's a great idea about the silver Sharpie, I just wanted to see if I could clean it up without messing the disc up. Thanks everyone

The problem is the ink literally seeps into the disc. I've seen discs where it soaked all the way from the bottom through the top and was visible there.

Honestly, if you are planning to use the discs, I've found it easiest just to scratch out the other names (I bought most of my discs from play-it-again when I started and they were all used)

Plate cleaner works pretty well for anyone near a prepress department or pressroom.

Isn't silver sharpie technically a paint? If so it would make a disc illegal for sanctioned play. I'm no expert on inks or paints but it comes off easy because it doesn't absorb into the plastic like all other colors of sharpie "ink" and if it stays on the surface then the is a measurable "thickness". Not trying to troll just been curious about this for a while now
