Cleaning glass fridge shelves??

It's cheap and will "melt" away the nastiest, stuck on gunk. However, I have a fridge that has REAL glass shelves. DUMBEST idea ever, Kenmore!!! (not my choice, fridge came with the house!)I didn't actually realize they were real glass until I removed one to clean it. I took it from the cold fridge to the bathtub as it had various gross spills and stuck on rotten food. Ick. I assumed it was plastic or plexiglass. Found out the hard way when I proceeded to turn on the hot water in the tub, and the COLD glass shattered into hundreds of thousands of tiny pieces right there in the tub!! And you can imagine what fun THAT was to clean up. SO obviously hot water isn't going to help me (on the remaining shelves)... I'd love ideas on how to successfully clean them, preferably without taking them out of the fridge. I am afraid of them now! But there is always stuck on grossness to be dealt with. The fridge is always chaotic with that missing shelf. It's been "replaced" with various wire baskets but it always ends up being a big mess and you can't find anything. I have decided, if we get the house clean and KEEP it in maintenance for six months, we are getting another fridge as a reward!
