Outside glass cleaner?

So my tank was getting a little dull from the water changes where I just wiped down the water with a paper towel. So today I went to Petsmart and bought the expensive glass cleaner for the tank. The thing is I followed the directions to a T and now it looks the same if not even a little more cloudy than before. Does anyone have any suggestions?

For the outside?

Windex? Or water and vinegar. That's all i've ever used.

I use white vinegar and paper towels. Works beautifully.

As for Windex, I would not spray anything containing ammonia near the tank. If you just put some on a paper towel you might be ok tho.

Animal testing is a terrible idea; they get all nervous and give the wrong answers.

I appreciate the replies. I found out also that the gouramis really hate the sound of the paper towels squeaking on the glass, they were getting really upset about it.
