Recently found what PETg (CoPET) Sticks perfectly to aluminum heat bed with temperature 120-130 Celsius degree and detaches from it when it cools down lower than 50 Celsius degree without any leftovers. Another live hack for ABS. It sticks to glass or metal heated surface with inflicted several layers (5-8) of almost any sort of light beer with temperature ...

It's probably not practical, but what would be ideal is to put the glass from the bed in an oxygen plasma asher used in the semiconductor industry. It would probably be difficult to get a used one large enough, since your bed size probably matches state of the art wafer sizes. What would be even more practical is for someone to develop an oxygen plasma ...

Heat the bed to around 90 °C and then scrape everything off with a metallic scraper, like the ones used to fill gaps in walls. No need of a super sharp one, since the plastic will be very soft a that temperature. If you have a razor blade and a proper handle to avoid cutting yourself, you won't need to heat the bed to more than 40 °C, since you dont want the ...

Maybe you could put your bed at the max temperature and print a large square of 1 mm onto it using a higher than normal temperature for that filament, maybe this bonds the residue to the new print. Let it cool down and pry the print off or remove while hot.

I would try a single edge razor blade at a low angle used as a scraper. If you can't feel the blade catching in the residue, it probably isn't an issue. If you must get rid of it you don't have good choices of solvents. Maybe you can burn it off by placing the class in an oven through a clean cycle. With luck the hearing and cooling won't break the glass....
