Best way to remove writing scratched in plastic

Hi! I've purchased piles of clamshells from recyclers which have "ABC School District" or similar text etched/scratched/etc. into the plastic on the top of the case. I need to remove this before re-selling the machines because recyclers are required to remove the previous identities of the machines they take in. Does anyone know a good way to do this kind of thing without making a total mess? The text itself is scratched into the plastic and pretty low-profile as-is, however I know it will look horrible if I take my Dremel to it. Anyway, just wondering if anyone has creative ideas.

Thanks!

Polish it away with toothpaste or a chromium polish? Works for scratched watch glasses.

Thanks for the response. Does that work for deep scratches, though? The text is scratched pretty deep into the plastic. Thanks!

You can try removing the bulk with sanding paper and polish afterwards.

Replace the LCD top cases with cheap ones bought on ebay if you can find a seller that can sell you a lot.
