What glue do I use to reapply the flexible backing on the keyboard?

15" MacBook Pro retina Early 2013 2.4 GHz (Model A1398)

I had to do a teardown to clean chicken soup out of the keyboard and trackpad (no soup got anywhere else). I removed and cleaned the flexible backing on the keyboard assembly, and also cleaned the keys.

My question is this: What glue do I use to reapply the flexible backing on the keyboard?

Thanks.

I was worried that it had to be a kind of glue that could withstand the heat inside the computer without softening. But from the answer it would seem this is not a problem. Thanks.

You have a few choices here: Apple uses a hot glue, my personal choice is using 3M double stick tape.
