    vinegar on scott towels does wonders

    or spray windex on the scott towels quite a few feet away from the tank.

    moving.. so temporarily out of SW :b8:
    planning next tank, possibly 60x30x20 on 2x plasma.

    i do the same, wipe it down with water or vinegar and a paper towel, then if needed i use a little windex sprayed on a paper towel ( gently, in another room ) and clean my hands very thoroughly ( windex contains ammonia ) before doing anything else to the tank.

    i also have some stuff for cleaning tinted windows, made by "simple green". it says it's non-toxic and biodegradable but i would still be very cautious spraying it around the tank and always clean your hands well after.

    White vinegar and water with unbleached recycled paper towel. You can't go wrong with vinegar. I use a micro fibre towel to buff the glass once it is clean.
