Remove permanent Marker from games ( etc )

by gamedudemat Sun Aug 25, 2013 10:04 pm

Have you ever bought a game from a store, yard sale, pawn shop ( etc ) and someone who owned it before you wrote on it!? Sometimes it's the store owners who do it!! Well here is a video that shows you how to remove that annoying permanent marker!

Rubbing alcohol on a Magic Eraser. It seems to take less rubbing that way, which means less abrasion to the cart.

I use a dab of Goo-Off and a Magic Eraser.

Nice Video. Maybe include a box shot of the Mr Clean product to help identify where the "white sponge" Magic Eraser comes from. Using Lift Off or Goo Gone with the Magic Eraser might help to quicken the ink removal. There is also the Scotch Brite Easy Erasing Pad that produces similar results. Be careful if using either on the cart labels, LiftOff alone might suffice.

Thanks for the informative video, a nice walkthru using the Magic Eraser.

I have a Polish and Repair Disc / Game Cleaning Guide posted, I added you video link there.

Wow thank you very much CRT Gamer! And yes showing the product on camera a little better would have helped, ( it was my wife's first solo video ) Thanks again.

Has your wife been in any other of your videos? I was surprised to see you playing Bubble Bobble alone. That game begs for a second player.
