For those who don't know, the active ingredient in nail polish remover is acetone.

^I should give this a try.

Also, ink's stubbornness is proportional to the time it's had to be absorbed by the plastic. After some point, it becomes "part of the disc."

I have found that I have been able to greatly fade most sharpie markings off my discs by using an EXPO marker and covering the ink completely with it, wait a minute and then use a white board eraser to wipe it.

Sometimes it takes a couple of rounds of it but I've been satisfied with how well it faded the ink. It's a fairly simple remedy. I will be buying a silver sharpie now though!

I also use the dry erase marker method. works the best on dx, but only fades it on champ/star/pro.

I personally have never tried this method but placing discs in the sun will eventually fade it off. How long i dont know? He put them on his roof?

The UV rays may very well fade sharpie ink, but I'd be more concerned about what is happening to the disc...

The silver Sharpie idea was really good. Actually the three pack gold, silver, and bronze markers is pretty sweet. Nail polish removes it off pretty good compared to black permanent marker.
