I accidentally wrote something from whitener / white correction fluid on a metal bench. I want to remove it.. Any possible ways ?

    A picture would help; right now i'm not seeing why it wouldn't just scratch off with a fingernail after it dries - correction fluid doesn't adhere very well to nonporus/shiny surfaces – Caius Jard Jul 9 at 11:06

  • @Stan pretty sure OP meant to put cleaning tag and misclicked. – Shadow The Princess Wizard Jul 9 at 13:21
  • @Stan I guess people who have knowledge about clothing might know this too .. – Nityoday Tekchandani Jul 9 at 14:09
  • I submitted an edit to the tag, it just needs peer review. LHSE might not have enough peers though! – Caius Jard Jul 9 at 14:14

If the bench is unpainted metal, you can simply scrape the dried correction fluid off with a knife or other blade. Be gentle so you don't scratch the metal surface too.

Rubbing alcohol or nail paint remover might work.

    @Stan that canned comment doesn't mean a lot to the author of this post. The answer is short and to the point. What exactly is missing or wrong with it? Instead of pointing people at long pages please let them know what's wrong. – Shadow The Princess Wizard Jul 9 at 13:23

    "Might" work? We look for definitive answers here. Can you provide some evidence that this will work? – Chenmunka Jul 9 at 18:14
  • @ShadowWizard Wrong? Missing? What is your problem with welcoming and inviting someone to augment their information about this site? I think your inferences were wrong or missing something about my "canned" comment. I don't find your comment correct or helpful; but, thanks for your attempted guidance in this matter. – Stan Jul 9 at 20:21
