How to get PE out of beaker corners?

Hello gents,
Is there a solvent or acid anyone can recommend for getting solidified polyethylene out of the corners of glass beakers? Scraping it out with a long
sharp instrument is tedious and inevitably leaves minute residue.
None of the usual suspects work because PE is so very chemically stable.
Any suggestions would be appreciated! :-)
Thanks, -- TTK

Worth trying N-methyl-2-pyrrolidone. Boils at 202 C so take care. It might soften the PE but probably won't dissolve it completely, Good luck!
