@mahead321, for removing sticky labels from glass (or porcelain, ceramics, plastic, metal, etc) , I learned many years ago when I was a student working in a gift shop, you can use a strip of Scotch tape. Stick it over the area with the glue residue and lift. Repeat as needed.

Last year we renovated a bathroom and bought a granite vanity counter. It had been on special, the floor model, and had several stickers on it (old price, new price, etc) which, when I peeled off, left a lot of glue behind. The trick with the Scotch tape worked great and left the surface clean and unmarred.

"Garbage disposals do not have blades. They have impellers that are not sharp, but blunt. So, putting ice or egg shells down the disposal to sharpen the blades will not do any good. In fact, egg shells are not recommended for the garbage disposal as the membrane can get wrapped around the impellers and cause damage".
