When you tried heat--did you try to wick away the melted material by
applying the heat through a sheet of wicking material? And you might
do it while putting the paper on a metal table to conduct away the
heat in the paper.

I will send you a small sample of our Oil-Mop microfiber cloth which
we are considering stocking in quantity if it proves useful. Send me
your shipping address.
