Wipe it down with a clean, damp, soft cloth. On the outside, spray Windex ON THE CLOTH and wipe down.

Inside the tank you can get acrylic safe bushes and scrapers, don't ever put chemicals inside the tank.

If the tank is empty then I am sure there are easier ways, hopefully someone else will help.

I use a cotton washcloth rubber banded to a wooden spoon it's just ruff enough to clean without scratching just fold it over both sides of the spoon

DONT USE WINDEX, USE WHITE VENIGAR. You can wipe down with a soft cloth or real soft paper towels and either diluted white vinegar or pure vinegar, one drop of windex in your tank can kill your fish and can create bad ammonia spikes
