cleaning my MH glass

What is the best thing to use to clean my MH glass.... I'm thiniking this is a stupid question and common sense says "glass cleaner"! However, I was just worried about chemicals getting into tank -- even though I would remove the MH for cleaning.

Yes I would not clean it with window cleaner or a type of cleaner if there is a chance of getting in the water. I`m thinking a vinegar/water solution.

I would use a mix of white vinegar and water, or just water. Watch some of those cleaners, as they may contain ammonia.
