Suggestions for cleaning the outside of tank?

I'm afraid of using household cleaning products around my tank and I know that there are aquarium products. What do you use to clean the outside of your tank? Maybe dilute vinegar?

I use a little bit of straight white vinegar on paper towels to clean the outside glass. You can dilute it too.

I use windex with vinegar rather than normal windex with ammonia.

I use a damp paer towel, and then dry with a cloth towel only used for my tanks. I've never needed anything beyond water, but other products are fine provided they get no where near the tank water.
