Best Glass Cleaning Product

What is the best product to clean the inside glass of my aquarium? It's not algae, just appears to be dust (maybe from the live sand).

There are a couple things that I have and use .
1 mag float for my inbetween cleaning just swipe it on the glass .
2 scrub and toss for my weekly cleanings just cut them into sixths and scrub and toss as the name implies.
3 med/hard tooth brush never used for hard to reach corners and areas
4 razor blade for coraline removal HTH

for inside i either use a magnatized algae scraper (gets most things off the glass) or when i do PWC i have a sponge head (used to be attached to a stick as a scraper but it fell off a long time ago) that i use when water levels are down

I use a mag float and a new toothbrush and a razor, just like Sadie.

I bought a tetra filter for another small tank I decided to setup, and it came with some sort of Tetra cleaning wipe that you can use inside the aquarium for algae/hard water spots.. Worked great, just seemed like a wet nap without the harsh agents. And the fish are fine.
