Greetings and, Welcome to the Forum~!!
Now that the panic attacks have subsided somewhat, let's review what happened.
First. Like the good folks suggested, grab some spirit of mineral and, wipe it off carefully. (Wear gloves, in fact if you haven't yet done so, now would be a great time to buy yourself a box of disposal latex..Be sure to get the better ones as some cheaper brands will just melt when using S-o-M ..)
Second. I would suggest, since you said the surface isn't too bad, to not use a very aggressive method at first. Like anything, go slowly..Be aware that you're gonna be at this for atleast 80 to well over 100 hrs..In other words, this is gonna take some time~!
Like all of us who have been there and, done that will tell you..There's just no real short cut to this process.
Third..Go back and, look at the pictures/read some more on tech.Finally, got started~
