Illustrator CC: Turn off align objects to pixel grid

I have inadvertently created an illustration with the align new objects to pixel grid turned on (not sure why it was on, I did not know or ever turn it on) and want to now scale the image. When I turned it off, I scale and it is still affecting the illustration.

So I copy and pasted it into a new document (Making sure that the option was turned of when I created the new document), and it is still affecting the illustration.

BTW, in the future, you don’t have to create a new document. You can just disable the option from the Transform Panel. To turn this option off for all future objects, then click on the top right corner again to show the options menu and tick off Align new objects to pixel grid.
