I figured out how to do one of Dynamo's card tricks, annoyingly it involves writing on the card, so I wondered if there is anyway of removing the ink from a pen after doing a trick involving writing on a card, anyone know????

Don’t know the specific effect, but they’re cheap enough to just replace the card you wrote on with a duplicate from another deck. Rotate which card is used and you have 52 refills.
...what if I could read your mind?

If such a substance existed it most likely would be far more expensive than a replacement deck of cards. And probably cause cancer in lab animals. Just buy a new deck or two and replace cards as needed.

I don't know what it might do to the card, but Sharpie does make a permanent ink remover. If I remember correctly dry erase markers will also remove Sharpie ink.

I know you believe you understand what you think I said, but I am not sure you realize that what you heard is not what I meant.

Pour a little nail varnish on a plate soke alittle in a cotton bud and ligthly wipe. White spirt and ligther fule migth also work. But really a new deck of cards is the best way to go.
Enjoy your magic,

and let others enjoy it as well!

Several things work. In listing form:

1. Write over the writing with a dry marker and wipe it off.

2. Acetone (nail polish remover) - but it is messy and can take the coating off a card

3. By All Means the Most Efficient - BURN THE CARD and replace it from another deck. (From SAM'S they are about $1.25 a deck.)

My personal favorite is to simply give it to the volunteer to keep.

All sound advice above - I agree with giving the card to the spectator and replacing the card from another deck.

Out of curiosity, which of Dynamo effects are you referring to? Would it be his handling of Wayne Houchin's french kiss by any chance?

Even if you need to rePlace the same card over and over.. Buy yourself a forcing deck.
