Has anyone tried removing screen prints/vinyl prints from t-shirts with acetone? There's a Medusa shirt I'd buy and wear the hell out of if it didn't also say "Let's Get Stoned" and I'm trying to decide if this is a feasible experiment.


@erinbee I’m a screen printer. We use acetone in a little electric pressure sprayer to take small amounts of ink out of shirts, but usually nothing bigger than a small incidental fingerprint. If you sprayed on that shirt long enough to take all that text out, you’d beat up the fabric pretty good and it would also wick into the print near it that you want to keep and ruin it. I hate to be a downer, but I’d call that a lost cause.
