I'm curious if anyone has any idea to clean or to way to make the titles more legible on the end of the cylinders? Some look great and some are really hard to read, I would appreciate any ideas. Thanks... John

You ask you shall receive!

I cleaned and I think I used a white acrylic paint, wiping it off not too long after applying.
