    Personally I'd trad it with a porcupine sleeve, hot water and elbow grease

    It's kinda hard to say as every job is different some glass needs 4x cleaned on the first clean 4 weekly will make it easer but can still be a pig to get no salt streaks or spots u will have to just play it buy ear and check once dried
