Yup it is a harsh chemical. Back in my violin construction days we used xylene to clean fiddles without damaging the varnish. We were warned that it can get into your system and do serious liver damage right through your skin.
However one day someone tagged some red bricks with felt marker. A xylene soaked cloth wicked it right off.
