Whats the best graffiti remover?


I wonder if a small can of gas & a brush would be good for the tough jobs?
I've got this paint I've been scrubbing for 3 days & you can still see it.

Here is a pr community relations trick worth trying. Why not stop by the school with the primary purpose of asking maintenance what they use for graffiti and then mentioning in passing what is going on?

You are not going to get dried paint off with gasoline. Sorry.

Get yourself a paintball gun and wait for them. Return the favor.

Tempting idea but guess who would end up with a felony assault charge? And it would just start a war.

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?
When you have paint that you have used other things on it first "Shadow Away" is a liquid spray that turns to a gel that penetrates porous surfaces to get out paint shadow left behind. Can be purchased on line at www.shopsoapwarehouse.com.

Talking to my local Cops I just learned we have a local Graffiti Busters group that takes care of this, so If I find some tough ones I'll just call them & they'll remove it for me.
Yet I wonder how long after you call them it might take?

Tagging would drive me nuts. I'd be tempted to take revenge, but like sdester says, not only would you get nailed with assault charges, you'd probably have rocks through your windows and maybe worse.

I'm fortunate to live far enough out of LA not to have this problem.
