What to use to clean outside of tank

Can anyone tell me what I should use to clean the outside my new tank as has some water marks. Don't want to do anything to upset it as plants are looking healthy and am about to start cycling it for the first time.

Thanks

Ian

For the glass I use widex and a new paper towel. For more resistant water stains, white vinegar will dissolve mineral deposits.
Good luck.

Usually they can be switched back and forth by twisting the nozzle.

Someone once claimed that the magic eraser is safe for use inside the tank too. I looked into it a little and they (the white ones) appear to be an all natural product with no chemicals whatsoever. Interesting product. Reports say it's safe.
