White out thinner is acetone. So is nail polish remover. At a job yrs ago our lady boss refused to approve buying ofc sply store white out thinner. A bottle of nail polish remover is ridiculously cheaper and its the same stuff.

Ordinary rubbing alcohol will thin white out. You can also remove some marker ink with a dab of bleach but only when the ink is fresh and don't rub just dab with a q-tip.

The best and most effective way to thin out liquid paper is to put about 4 to 5 drops of hand sanitizer in it. Works like new, and dries smooth. Thanks, Tombo

Those correction tapes and the pens are okay but sometimes you get more than you need in the form of a blob. I use the fluid with a brush. They have some with a sponge applicator.


The brush works best for me. I just think it with vodka. Rubbing alcohol works too. I just never know where the rubbing alcohol is. Vodka, I can find. If you use water, you need distilled water so bacteria won't cause mold or mildew
