Cover any ink you don't want to be dissolved with scotch/cello tape (be sure to double over one end so you can remove it later). Then pour a measure of Acetone into a pan or tray large enough to fit the document, and wash it be gently sweeping it through the acetone until the ink is gone. Hang to dry, and finally remove the tape.
