What аnti-Newton glass cleaning products do you prefer?
For some time no I've been using Naptha from the hardware store with a well washed microfibre cloth. Seems to work well on neg carriers, proof printers etc. It's also a great cleaner for camera bodies. If I had the guts I'd use it on lenses - but I suspect the lens coating would end up entirely on the cloth!
Just the microfiber cloth, or maybe some pure (everclear) alcohol if really dirty.
I try not to get my AN Glass dirty but inevitably it needs an occasion wash.
I use :-
Rubber gloves + Hot water and washing-up liquid
Followed by lots of hot water to rinse
Finally, dried on a clean old linen tea-towel
If the glass still has a "bloom" then I wash with Mentholated Spirit (100% Methyl Alcohol) followed by a long hot water rinse
