not sure. Is the art work a sticker or a stamped on image? if you have a really beat up one, try stuff out on it first.
maybe just try a bit of water, or use a baby wet wipe.
if that doesn't work, try isopropyl alcohol

That's awesome.
If it's good enough for a baby's bottom, it's good enough for SW toys. lol!

sorry for the bad joke cheeky

I know rubbers are actually erasers in your neck of the woods but , when you ask about rubbers in the US , it brings a totally different mental image What a Face
