Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Other than alcohol wipes, which I don't have to hand, is there anything else I can use to clean my folder?
     
  2. If youhave written on the plastic pages with permanent marker, then a simple pencil eraser should do the trick, just keep rubbing 'til its all gone
     
  3. Duraglit metal polish does the trick nicely.
     
  4. Thanks guys, thankfully I have both those items to hand. Cheers.
     
  5. Scribble over the permanent pen with a non-permanent pen and it will come of with a quick wipe ;)

    I also used to keep a small tub of nail varnish remover pads in my bergen for cleaning my orders book...works a treat and if you are man enough, you can even deflect most of the piss takes too :lol:
     
  6. Of course, I never mark maps or write orders down in the field. I simply consign everything to memory in the 5 seconds before the message self-distructs.

  7. Amazingly the only thing that's actually taking the bloody ink off is nail varnish remover.

    Why I have that to hand, well that's up to you's to conclude.
     
  8. Brasso.

    most alcohol products including deodrant and after shave
     
  15. Any deodrant spray will do the job. Or rub over it with scotchbrite and rite on it with pencil in the future.
