How can silk screen lettering be removed from nylon shirts?

I have several nylon running shirts that have silk screen lettering on the fronts of them.
What is the best way to remove the paint, without harming the nylon?
Alcohol (vodka) worked a little on one of the shirts, the one with the thickest paint, but didn't faze the others at all. Interestingly the letters on the tough ones are already half way worn off.
An idea that is good for cotton, ironing a paper bag on the front, would probably melt the nylon.
Is there anything else that would take off the paint, without harming the nylon?
