How to Remove Thread Caught Inside Pearl

I am most impressed with your instructions as to how to thread your pearls but nowhere have you spoken about
the problem, which I am sure might be quite common.
I have a valuable string of pearls and was attempting to restring them myself. In so doing one pearl has some of the old cotton thread stuck in it and I have tried almost everything but cannot get the cotton out of the bead.
Please, I would appreciate it if you could advise me as to what product will remove that cotton.
