Cleaning the inside glass

Could someone tell me how I can successfully clean the inside of the glass? I bought one of these but it's too bulky https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0...?ie=UTF8&psc=1

I also bought a glass scrapper but that does nothing. I even bought one with a sponge and scrapper on each opposite side and still not helpful. I have resulted in using that with a paper towel that does the job. I saw at one pet store where the person cleaning the tanks that day used a Mr. Clean magic sponge! Isn't that full of chemicals? What do you use?

We have a few different things, but the one cheap item that works the best is a dish brush. One of those untreated kind on a handle for hand washing dishes. The bristle kind, not the sponge. We have a sponge one too, but the bristles work better imo on tough algae etc

We also have a regular old untreated dish sponge, with an abrasive cloth side, for cleaning under the lids where algae builds up due to the lights, or where I inadvertently fling food that sticks

I use one of those magnetic kind that can basically stay in the tank in the back. Works most of the time but if I need to get any stubborn algae this works perfect.

Razor blade takes it all off.

Those magnetic kind work good. I use a razor to get off that hard water deposit on the outside from drips from my poor water
