    I'm going to refill a foam soap bottle with a homemade foam soap recipe (thank you) but I don't know how to remove the graphics or ink print from the plastic foam soap refill bottle. Do I use nail polish remover or how does it come off? Thank you for your replies. I appreciate it. icon_smile.gif

    Polish remover will likely cloud the plastic by dissolving it. Alcohol won't work, at least it never does for me.

    The product, GOO GONE, usually works for most things like what you describe. It will even remove tar from a white carpet without damaging the carpet.

    See if the printing/graphic is printed on a clear plastic label that's applied to the bottle. If it is, maybe you can get your finger nail under one corner and slowly pull it off. If it leaves stuff behind, GOO GONE will remove it.

    Thank you, Kathy. I will try the Goo Gone. The ink is directly on the plastic bottle and not on a label.

    If the Goo Gone doesn't work, put a decorative decal over the writing ~

    I know cheap hair spray such as Aqua Net will remove ink from fabric but not sure about plastic. I went to my "internet bible" eHow and found this. Hope it is helpful: http://www.ehow.com/how_4856352_remove-silk-screen-paint.html[/u][/url]

    Where can you find Aqua Net anymore? That would be nice to have as hubby is always having a pen leak in his shirt pocket. I have even bought the little bottles of product to remove ink stain but they dont get it all out. I dont think I have seen A.N. in years.

    Any hairspray should work on ballpoint pen ink, or cash register tape ink! At least it has for me in the past ~

    How do you "apply" it? I mean, do you just spray it on and then wash it, or spray and blot and keep repeating? What is the method that you use to do this. I have had to throw away more shirts because of this problem. Any advice appreciated. icon_smile.gif

    Saturate the ink spot with the hairspray ~ the ink should begin to break down pretty quickly. Blot ~ Then wait a bit, and respray. You might need to spray several times before washing.

    And ... you might want to buy your husband some pocket protectors ~ you can buy them at office supply stores! icon_razz.gif

    Thanks for the tip! As far as pocket protectors, he used to use them but that is just not the "in" thing in the office today. At least where he works. Yes, those protectors saved alot of ink greif! icon_smile.gif How do you get the little guy to wave?
