I just gotta wonder if there are any chemicals in the paper towel.

Agree with HN1... just reach in and brush it off! And you're correct - I wouldn't use a mag cleaner for sand because it will scratch the living heck out of the glass. I think Austinsdad and myself were just saying that magnet cleaners WILL work on a bowfront.

as long as there is no sand pinched between the magnet and the glass, i don't see it hurting much, because the sand would just be brushed away by the magnet sweeping across the glass. then again, i have pfs, not actual sand like for SW, so i could be wrong.

yea, don't trust papertowels, never know what they've been 'processed' with or whatever. if you're reaching in there, you might as well just use your hand as HN1 said.
