    best way to remove salt from glass

    what do I have to use to remove the salt from the tempered glass lens protecting my MH lights.

    My glass is etched with the salt. What solution removes it?

    I take the arcylic screen off my 4' every light change and clean the salt deposits with ... dum dum dumm... Windex. (not over the tank, I take it out to clean it.)

    After it's clean, then I clean it again with RO/DI water & paper towels.

    There is nothing so permanent as a temporary measure.
