I've had good luck with a damp, almost dry rag.. but only work a small section at a time.. and use a white rag, that way you wil know if you are removing any color, just keep checking the rag. It sounds crazy but i have used a heavy cut polish on cardboard, again, it needs to be done in very small areas.. Be patient, and remember, you cant make it worse than it is now!

... brush off the loose stuff with a small, dry paint brush, then proceed gingerly with one of these:
