Maybe try this instead (you added the symbol as a list, not just a symbol):


#+BEGIN_SRC emacs-lisp
(add-text-properties 1 3 '(invisible hide-this-stuff))
(add-to-invisibility-spec 'hide-this-stuff)

: (hide-this-stuff (org-hide-block . t) (org-link) (outline . t) t)

#+BEGIN_SRC emacs-lisp
(remove-from-invisibility-spec 'hide-this-stuff)

: ((org-hide-block . t) (org-link) (outline . t) t)
