It just occurred to me... some time ago I had some graphite marks on my
white telephone, and they wouldn't come off for anything.  I had the phone
repairman in (this was a long time ago) for something else, and he cleaned
the phone with rubbing alcohol, which worked perfectly.  Now, rubbing
alcohol has other junk in it to make it unusable for food use, but I
believe vodka is fairly pure.  That might be worth testing on your test
