How to remove plastic from hardboard placemats?


I have paper placemats that are on hardboard with a cork backing. The plastic film is peeling in places. I would like to remove it all and put on a new protective plastic covering. But other than the pieces that have peeled off easily I can't figure out how to remove the rest. Does any one know how to do it without wrecking the paper print underneath?

Try applying oil so it will slowly slide out..
