    Rubbing alcohol should be able to remove marker pen marks without damaging the print (beware! I haven't tested this myself!!). Do not use acetone, since that'll remove the print. Mar 24 at 16:39

    @IvanSanchez acetone will dissolve (or at least attack) the plastic, never mind the print. I'd consider denatured alcohol ("methylated spirits" here in the UK) rather than rubbing alcohol ("surgical spirit") because the non-alcohol components in the latter might be an issue. Either way I wouldn't dip/soak/rinse for long before rinsing in water; I'd only try wiping if a simple dunk didn't work
