What is a safe way to remove moment glue from the keyboard?

You really don't want to know I ended up getting a few drops of super moment glue on my Macbook keyboard, but luckily nothing horrible has happened (i.e. nothing actually glued together), but now I've got a small stain of glue on two keys and I am looking for a way to remove traces of that glue from them.

Surprisingly its just easier and safer to pop the caps off and replace them. Here's one source: TheBookYard - Replacement Keycaps

You could try to use acetone, but it could remove paint from the keys. I would try to remove the paint by scratching it with a pointy object, being carful of both the keys and your hands(there have been plenty of times I have poked myself trying to scrape up glue). Even if this works a little bit or slowly, I would go with it. Using acetone is a big gamble. I one spilled super glue on a desk and using acetone took off the wood stain. Mineral spirits and terpentin, though they would quickly take the glue off, would absolutely damage the keys.

I have the same problem right now to where my school computer have nail glue on it and on the mouse pad. Put nail polish remover on it. ALSO get a bowl of WARM WATER ( DO NOT POUR IT ON I REPEAT DO NOT POUR IT ON) Get a small towel and dab it really gentle. And it should come off.
