Default Removing ink from Wool - advice needed.

Hi, I have a wool tunic with a "HI" inked on that I think is post-war and certainly unwanted!

Have had some advice to possibly use Lacquer thinner, and after a search here on the WAF also perhaps 'Denatured Alcohol'.

Has anyone tried either of these with success, or has any other advice?

Regards, Paul

No guarantees, but when I was a stock boy in the 80's we got ink on our clothes all the time. We would grab can arisol hairspray or Lysol. Spray it on paper towel then push it on the ink spot. You can tell if it is working by seeing the ink lift into the paper towel. Used to work very well.
