Depending on the color and type of plastic surface, you can wet sand the plastic with 1500-2000 grit sand paper. Sand real lightly, and sand enough to see the stains disappearing from the sanding area. Be sure to keep sand paper level with surface, do not used finger tips, will leave grooves. Now depending on the surface rather semi- or glossy, wipe with a degreaser, that does not contain acetone. Spray plastic surface with a clear coat finish, either semi or glossy. Works great on plastic headlights on vehicles.

Yes, it can, just don't add too much acetone.

To produce plastic yourself, you can do the following:Materials needed:AcetoneGlass container with lidStyrofoamStep1Remove the lid from the glass container and pour a small amount of acetone into it. Acetone is used as paint thinner and can be found at hardware stores. Fill ½ inch of the jar with the acetone to start, and add more later if needed.Step2Break the Styrofoam into small pieces.Step3Drop the Styrofoam into the acetone jar. As it hits the acetone it melts. Continue to add Styrofoam into the jar until it stops melting. If you need more plastic than the amount of Styrofoam in the jar, pour more acetone and then add more Styrofoam.Step4Wait for 5 minutes to allow some of the acetone to evaporate. If you want to mold the plastic, wait 1 more minute. At that time, the plastic is easily shaped. Sculpt it into whatever shape you want.

No one acid can eat the plastic they are eaten by organic liquids as acetone.

Get some plastic polish from the local Plastics store ( there is one in almost every city. - Acetone is known solvent for fibreglass, - don't let it near any fiberglass finish, it may be polished out,but it's not easy.

Depends on the type of plastic. Many types can be sanded lightly, then polished to get rid of marks.

Apply Acetone which is available in nailpolish remover

Acetone evaporates on its own very quickly and will naturally leave a deposit of residue.æ Do not put acetone in a plastic container use glass, and if you need it to evaporate faster you can, very carefully, heat it slightly.

There is no easy way that I know off, and I've tried many times. The acetone actually etches the plastic. You have to get 3 grades of plastic polish and patiently rub it one grade at a time till it comes smooth again.

You can mix acetone with turpentine to make plastic. You need to be careful about fumes and make sure the room is aired out.

It can't. Hydrochloric Acid is sold in plastic bottles for this very reason. Try Acetone.

Acetone and lacquer thinner both work for that.

The best method would be to use a solvant. Acetone has been suggested by the manufacturer as a good solvant for the glue. Acetone is often found in household nail polish remover, and a small amount on the end of a Q-tip or cotton swab applied directly to the glue should dissolve the bond.ANS 2 - Acetone will make even more of a mess on plastic than super glue did !Shave it off carefully with a razor held flat,or a sharp craft knife, then sand it lightly till marks are gone.

Acetone will destroy most plastics. Try Goof-off. Or go to a salon or Walmart and buy non-acetone nail polish remover. That works on some solvent-based glues.

You can't really repair the plastic on a car you have to replace the part. If you were to try and repair it you could use bondo but it wouldn't look as nice.

is there any solution for the marks in my hand that is due to plastic surgery
