    I just stencilled a racquet. But I have found a few small drops of ink on the frame... I've tried the usual water, saliva, even tried to use friction(rubber) but not proving effecting.. What is the best substance or thing to use to remove ink from the frame. Advise would be appreciated.

    My next move would be rubbing alcohol. The paint job should be okay, but I can't guarantee it. Other than that, I've had pretty good luck with just using my fingernail to scrape it away.

    I used rubbing alcohol on one of my frames and it took away the gloss. Not sure why

    If rubbing alcohol does not work, use mineral spirit or paint thinner. Check that it does not remove gloss or paint.
