Whats the best graffiti remover?


I'm getting tired of having to constantly clean up graffiti from the front area of my home & they even did it on my camper the other day, I live about 1 & 1/2 blocks from a high school & this happens normally after school as they walk home past our home.

What I fint seems to work best is Carb Cleaner & a brush.
I've been using a plastic brush but I'm gotta try a metal brush next.

Goof off dont work nearly as well, but I will say its what I used when they hit my camper & it worked well of that without removing the campers paint job.

What do you find works best?

Any Soy paint remover is a safe choice.

Why have you not set up a camera to catch them? Have you reported this to the police?

So glad I do not have to deal with all that poop around here.

Contact your sheriff. They may already know who the punks are that are doing this, or might be able to get some juvi's to come over and clean it up by earning civic hours on their sentences.

I did call the LAPD & told them about it & I've been chasing this officer for over 6 months trying to start my own neighborhood watch program & I have my surrounding homes all behind me on this.
I've mounted light for nights around here, yet cant afford the camera set up yet, But.... I've been seriously considering it.
Then I could simply turn over the tapes to the police & see if they know the guy & then they can go get him.
Like I said its probably various school kids that do this along the way as they walk home.
This is the bummer about living in the big city.
Same thing happens in England I remember the closer we got to London the worse it got.

I always try to clean it up as soon as I notice it.
I dont even let the paint or ink dry if I can help it.
In my mind I figure if they see that it dont even get to last a day then they'll stop wasting their time & tag where it will actually last a while & people can see it & not a complete waste of time on their part not to mention getting possibly busted.

I might not mind as much if it was street art, but, its just names of who knows what?
Gangs?
Taggers names?

Someone responded to my post on this topic with this url that looks promising.

It might be worth reporting this to law enforcement. I would also mention it to the school.

Not sure if you have Northern Tool out there but they have both the cameras and the sencer that sprays water.

Make sure that you are taking pictures of it, and forwarding them to the gang unit. As for Neighborhood Watch, check out the website http://usaonwatch.org. As for Street Art, there are those that tag for showing that the territory is their's, and then there are true Graffiti artists that make it a art by showcasing their talents. Those that do it to showcase will either ask you if it is okay to use a area to do it. Check out some of the stuff by Banksy at banksy.co.uk.

Gander Mtn. Bass Pro Shops are a few places. There are a few hunter forums out on the web, a lot of them usually have a technology area for the cameras and such.
