I just moved my Messor out of a Formica hybrid nest 2.0 and need to clean it. I glued the glass on with Elmer's glue all

I cleaned my hybrid nest (old version) with mild soap, hydrogen peroxide, and que tips.
Proverbs 6:6-8

Go to the ant, you sluggard;
consider its ways and be wise!
It has no commander,
no overseer or ruler,
yet it stores its provisions in summer
and gathers its food at harvest.

Elmer's glue is water soluble meaning you can take the nest and immerse it on warm water (completely covered) and let it set, the glue will soften and dissolve which will allow you to remove the glass. Be genital with the glass when removing it.
