cleaning nirex folders

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
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:
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.
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.

Hungover this morning and decided to do a bit of gentle admin.

Scrounging some nail-polish remover from my better half, I came upon some little perfume tester atomiser thingies. Glass or plastic tube about two inches long and the thickness of a pencil.

Pull spray-pump mechanism off.
Tip vile-smelling contents away.
Refill with nail-polish remover.
Push spray-pump mechanism back on.
Holds a few ml and each squirt will easily clear an A6 page.
Ten to twelve squirts in a bottle.

This flash of inspiration was balanced out by me then struggling for five minutes trying to scrub a sketch-map from the wrong side of the page....
I left some nail varnish remover pads in one of the sleeves once and when I came to get my folder about a month later they had seriously destroyed every page in it. They had not melted through any just left a weird circle pattern on every page. Still have it somewhere
