Step 1: Gather Your Supplies

Before you start, make sure you have everything you need to get the job done. For this project, you'll require the following items:

  • Absolut Vodka bottle (empty and clean)
  • 100% acetone
  • Cotton pads or balls
  • Rubber gloves
  • Glass cleaner
  • Protective surface (like a plastic sheet or table cloth)

Why Acetone?

Acetone is a solvent that is particularly effective at dissolving the paint used on Absolut Vodka bottles. Some people might suggest using a paint thinner or nail polish remover, but we've found that 100% acetone is the best choice for this project.

Step 2: Prepare Your Bottle and Workspace

To avoid any accidents, it's important to prepare your workspace properly:

  1. Make sure the bottle is empty and clean. Rinse it with warm water to remove any remaining vodka, then allow it to dry completely.
  2. Place a protective surface (such as a plastic sheet or tablecloth) on your working area. This will prevent any damage from acetone spills and make clean-up easier.
  3. Put on your rubber gloves. Acetone can be harsh on your skin, so it's important to protect your hands during this process.

Step 3: Remove the Print

Now that you've gathered your supplies and prepared your workspace, it's time to get down to business. Follow these steps to remove the print from your Absolut Vodka bottle:

  1. Pour a small amount of acetone onto a cotton pad or ball.
  2. Press the cotton pad firmly against the area of the bottle where the print is located. You should begin to see the paint dissolving almost immediately.
  3. Continue to rub the acetone-soaked cotton pad over the printed area, re-soaking the pad as necessary. As the paint dissolves, it may spread over the surface of the bottle, but don't worry – you'll be able to clean this off later.
  4. Once all of the paint has been dissolved, wipe the bottle clean with a fresh cotton pad to remove any residual acetone and dissolved paint.
  5. Clean the bottle with glass cleaner and a microfiber cloth to ensure a streak-free finish.

It's worth noting that the process might take some time and effort, but patience is key for achieving a clean, print-free finish.
