Remove permanent marker from your old game cartridges

Here’s a quick and easy way to remove names written in marker on your video game cartridges. I’m using a Nintendo 64 game as a reference but this can also be done to many other old game carts such as NES, SNES, Game Boy, Sega Genesis, ect.

This method only works for the hard plastic cartridge, not the label art!

You will need a magic eraser and windex.

You don’t need the whole magic eraser so I like to cut off small pieces to use.

I just spray a tiny amount of windex onto the eraser and gently rub the marker off of the game. Do not use a large amount of windex, a few drops should do the trick.

And that Sharpie marker will come off in no time.

Not too difficult to do. Just remember do not do this to the Label on the game cartridge or you will start to remove the artwork. This method is for the hard plastic surfaces only.

Game On!

  1. Now, if only there was some way to de-yellow the old Nintendo plastic! I think that will take more than a magic eraser, though.
