How can you get Loc-Tite glue off of chrome-plated stainless steel?

I bought a pocketknife with a nice black-chrome steel finish. One of the screws holding on the right-hand scale was a little loose.

I replaced it, adding a little Loc-Tite. Unfortunately, a little glue got onto the scale. Not much, just a little crust near the hole that you don't notice, but I would like to remove it.

I also do not want to remove the black-chrome finish while I am at it. Been rubbing the spot with a piece of denim cloth, but it doesn't seem to be doing much good.

    Try dissolving the glue with acetone. Do it outside so you don't knock yourself out.

    Put a little heat to it, like from a heat gun, soldering iron, lighter
