Changing Sail Numbers

I have been donated a brilliant suit of sails for Carrera - thank you William! Of course, I need the change the sail numbers; can anybody advise me of the best stuff to remove sail numbers and their glue from a mylar main? I've got both white spirit and acetone to hand, but thought I'd ask before using something that might affect the mylar.

Very gently heat with a hair dryer and peel off when the glue is soft.  Clean any residue with meths - don't use acetone.

Laminate sails in my experience don't usually leave much residue if any at all. Toluene is a good glue removing solvent but beware of glues seams as it will have the same effect!
