But alcohol doesn't just sit on top of the water, it mixes with it. And then pulls the water out as the mix evaporates.
Buy cheap isopropanol form the drug store, usually available in three dilutions, each consisting of alcohol plus water. Use the 90%+ kind, it will be able to pull out more water and evaporate faster, since there's less in it to start with.
That won't un-saturate a soggy layer or coring, but it will pull moisture out of whatever is in direct contact with it.
