Cleaning inside of glass

So is there a good method to cleaning the inside glass of the aquarium? I have like streaks from where the sand had settled. I tried a algae scrub brush and magnet but still to no avail. Any tips or tricks?

Get in there with a (new) sponge with a scrub side and put a little elbow grease into it......

I like an algae scraper if you happen to have one go over it with the scrub brush first then what you can't get go back with the scraper.

For glass i would use a stainless steel blade for coraline algae. I would stay away from the sand if using a mag float as it might catch sand and scratch your tank. Kent marine scraper short handle works best. You get a handle and three blades for like 6$ at LFS or on amazon. One stainless steel, one plastic blade, and one algae scrubber

It's not algae. It's looks like Sand marks from when I added water.
