Get it wet and soapy and scrape it off

Only push forward with the scraper not forwards and backwards or you will trap grit under the blade and drag it across the glass

 

You can also buy a spray called cement off

I'm sure hg have their own version

Use cement off. Apply with sponge then leave it to work its magic, as the cement is dissolved it will turn white, give it ten minutes or so then wash glass with plenty of water you may have to repeat this process to remove all the cement.

Use a scraper as a last resort make sure glass is wet and with a new blade work in one direction only lift blade off glass, clean then repeat.

Cement off isn't cheap so charge according.

Cement is hard to take off even with a sharp blade.

Do you soak with water detergent etc.

Just plenty of water mate and scrape it , as for making a scratch on the glass I've never managed that either and I've used rusted blades and also scraped the odd bit without any water, maybe I'm just lucky in that way

If you soak the cement with soap detergent they will come off easily. Not much of a problem.
