    The supergluecorp.com homepage states: soak the glass in water.http://www.supergluecorp.com/removingsuperglue.htm...

    At this website http://www.spazzticcrafts.com/remove-super-glue.ph...

    it suggests

    :"Super glue creates an awful white film on glass which is the downfall of many a well-intentioned crafter. First, if there's a large buildup of glue on the piece of glass, you can carefully pry it away with a razor--be careful not to scratch the glass, though. The next step is acetone (in some nail polish removers). It damages wood and removes the color from most things, but is fine if you are just working with glass. It will remove the backing from most modern mirrors if it gets behind it. If you can't use acetone, you can try using dish soap and water, but you're probably going to be out of luck at fully removing the white film.

    Next comes lots of rubbing. Use a q-tip or soft cloth to lightly rub the nail polish remover on the glass. Occasionally rinse the glass clean, and rub the glass for a while while it's dry. Be extra careful if you're removing tiny bits of jagged super glue. They'll displace a couple inches then start to scratch the glass. If the glass is smooth, after a couple hours of rubbing and acetone the film should fade (depending on your luck). Rough glass, however, might never be fully clear--the saving grace here is that rough glass is rarely fully clear in the first place."

    Your best bet is a razor blade or the edge of an exacto knife. Sanding will scratch the glass. You can use a debonder to soften the glue but that can make the glass foggy or otherwise mess it up.

    They used to advertise the use of nail polish remover.

    I know that works, because, I had to go into a store to purchase some for a friend that got their fingers stuck on the door handle of a vehicle!!!!

    I won't go into how or why?

    A Hot Air gun would, but you might try using a sharp blade, that stuffs tuff, you almost have to chisel it off.
