Safe glass cleaner?

Hi all,

My aquarium glass is streaky on the outside from water spills, and I'd like to know if there are any cleaners I can make at home that will make it clean without streaks and that I can use while fish are in the tank, safely.

Also, what kind of cloth works best for not leaving streaks?

Thanks for any hints!

paper towel and windex, just don't spray it on the glass

You can also use vinegar. My SW I use plain RO water.

Okay! The Windex worked great though. I made sure to spray it on the paper towel in a different room, and now the glass is super clear and shiny.
