From the standpoint of the system you are building, it's not going to be that much of an issue. However, all that stuff can sure look ugly. Vinegar is worth a try, and by itself will not hurt acrylic. However, don't scrub too hard, since what you want to remove can scratch scrylic. The good thing is that acrylic can be buffed to remove scratches. The bad side is that it's a lot of careful work to do this.
As a note, some people advocate using much more powerful chemicals than vinegar to remove this sort of material. Personally, I consider them much to dangerous to use and don't recommend them.
