I use an asbestos pad soaked in DDT. Is that alright?

I have been using a vinegar/water mixture (1:4 vinegar to water mixture) for along time now. Just mix it in a spray bottle, spray it on the tank, and wipe. Have never had any ill effects from this and it adds a nice vinegar smell to the house! 8O

I just use a wet cloth with RO water on it, then I go back over it with paper towels to get off any water that might leave streeks.

Thus it will absorb anything you put on it
I just can't buy that! It would take years and years for something like this to affect the fish if the product didn't evaporate to begin with. I'm there with you on not spraying near the tank for fear of the overspray, but I just can't swallow that spraying on the glass is going to get into my tank... through the glass.

I could leave a full glass of water and that water is going to evaporate well before it seeps through a glass...

This certainly isn't what killed this guys fish in 3 days.

NO, but battery acid will remove any salt creep that you might have.

I also use news paper or coffee filters to actually wipe it down with. It doesnt streak as bad and doesnt leave little bits of fuzz behind.

I use those pre-soaked Glass Plus wipes. They seem to work fine. I have been using them for a couple of years with no trouble.
