I use Goof Off and it takes the ink right off of champion discs or dx discs. However I tried to take the ink off of a star disk and it did nothing.

In the thread that is above someone said that goof off will ruin the plastic, However it did not really affect the discs that I used it on.

The trick is to dissolve the ink, but not dissolve the plastic. Acetone tends to be rather aggressive toward plastics (it depends on the type of plastic, of course). I know from experience that acetone will etch Star plastic, as in the process of stripping off stamps with it it drove some of the stamp down into the plastic (and picked up some of the color of the plastic on the towel I was using). Lacquer thinner did roughly the same thing.

Some of the simple alcohols (ethanol, isopropanol) provide a viable alternative that will dissolve sharpie ink, but are far less harmful to plastics. I'd try one of these first. Rubbing alcohol or gas line antifreeze would be good bets. Only move on to less plastic friendly solvents (like acetone, gasoline, etc) if the alcohol doesn't work. Actually I'd stay away from gasoline for safety reasons. While all of the above are flammable, gasoline is the easiest to accidentally ignite and the most difficult to put out once burning.

Default removing dye...

umm, no. Starting over is the only thing that works. I bought a first run used skeeter today. I think it is DX but I'm not certain. It has a name in sharpie so I will try some of these methods to remove it. The disc is in perfect shape and I got it for $5. I'll let you know in a couple of days if it worked.

Question How to get sharpie off of discs?

I have never tried using anything before, but I just wanted to see what works to get your name off the back of disc, etc. Something that most people would have in their house and is not extremely expensive.

Thanks for your thoughts.
