  • The amount of success you experience will depend heavily on the type of wood you're talking about, but there's very little chance you're going to get all of the ink out of the fibers at this point unless you bleach it so much that it discolors everything around it even more. You can try saturating it with alcohol to possibly "lighten it up" by dispersing the pigments further but sanding down the surface is generally completely unavoidable when restoring any kind of neglected furniture.
