Wife wants to use short portions of PVC (I think, it's white) pipe for
some art project, how do I get the printing off pipe. I thought
Alcohol would work, but it doesn't. Also tried "goof off" and latex
paint remover, no luck. Obviously I could sand it off, but don't
want to do that, too much work.
The best thing is the clear PVC cleaner. I haven't really found anything else
Wear rubber gloves and wipe it with a rag. The daubber just smears the dye
around. Do this outside, the fumes are horrible and it will burn your skin.
If you really need a lot it might be better to find a place than sells
"uncertified/labelled" pipe to the furniture industry.
Yep. Which is why I stopped buying PVC cleaner many years ago, and switched to
pure acetone. It works just as well, and it's a *lot* cheaper (about the same
price per quart as the PVC cleaner is per half-pint).
By the way... Chemically, they're almost the same anyway. MEK is methyl ethyl
ketone. Acetone is methyl methyl ketone.
