Removing graffiti from these surfaces is a straightforward process using a variety of World's Best Removal products which will generally not react with the plastics or discolor them.

When using Sensitive Surface Graffiti Remover make sure to thoroughly flood coat the graffiti and push in the remover using a soft scouring pad at least once between coats to ensure it is penetrating the graffiti and substrate to dissolve the graffiti adequately. Once graffiti is fully dissolved, wipe it away with a DAMP toweling cloth.


For heavier baked-on graffiti, Bare Brick Stone & Masonry Graffiti Remover can be quicker to dissolve it. Brush on several times and push it in between coats with a scourer. After some dwell time and agitation gun off with a pressure washer.


The most common products used on recycled plastics are Sensitive Surface Graffiti Remover or Graffiti Safewipes (impregnated with Sensitive Surface Remover).
