    I mislabeled a disc since I didn't want to reburn it I took my girlfriend's Nail Polish Remover on some tissue and wiped it off. I also rinsed the disc under running water so as not to risk harming the disc. Just a tip I thought everyone would want to know.

    Alcohol, which is the main ingredient in polish removers, will also remove "most" markers.

    Had the same problem with a permanent marker and alcohol wouldn't budge it. I tried WD-40 and that did it! Crazy as it may seem, it worked!

    Be certain that you remove ALL traces of the WD-40 before you use that disc.

    Holy YIKES, Batman!

    Nail Polish Remover???

    You may be okay if it does NOT contain Acetone. Acetone and acrylic don't get along since acetone is a solvent for acrylic, and will permanently ruin any acrylic it comes in contact with.

    As a safer alternative, consider naptha which is "Zippo" liquid lighter fluid and far safer than acetone (I've safely used it on silk; it's practically unbeatable as a "sticky" remover too". Do ensure that you get the liquid and NOT the butane.

    Cheers,
