    Probably will have to just scratch it off with your nails when they arent painted. Definitely not a good idea to use liquids on it.

    Where Judas lost it's boots.
    Don't use acetone or nail polisher remover that will most likely melt the keys. Try to scrape it off.
    If it didn't it the keyboard frame only the keys, in last resort I think you can just swap keys with and apple keyboard (the short one).

    Carefully use a very sharp knife, or a box cutter to scrape it off. Be careful! You're right about not using nail polish remover, it'll react with the plastic and leave junk behind.
