I tried several alcoholic detergents in the past. They only resulted in
damage to the plastic(ky) components and I don't think they ever affected
the scratches positively. The best you can do is 'burn' the plastic around
the scratched region, thereby /flattening/ the surface. It seems risky.

Later on I moved on to soft and thick duct tape strips, which I placed over
the Graffiti area. This worked wonderfully well, but over the long-run my
Graffiti area became unusable and I had to use the on-screen keyboard.

The newer models appear to be much more scratch-proof and they are more
sensitive to taps, which means that littler pressure is applied to them on
a daily basis.
