I don't know any other "safe" way to do it other than alcohol or maybe wiping it off (although I doubt that will work )

Try with some acetone, widely available on brick and mortar drugstore. Or nail polish cleaner would be good if you willing to risk your cpu to smell like roses for a while.

nail polish remover? or some type of alcohol based cleaner.

 

if you have a plastic tool maybe you can scrape it off. but I would not use a metal tool.
