Thanks, Jan

If just on the surface fine abrasive paper. Anything else you are
looking at solvent cleaners but unless you really value it just chuck
it and buy another.

One of the fibreglass pencils are good for this sort of thing. Like:

They work, but the dust from them can be extremely irritating.

Yup, I was thinking of mentioning that but but was feeling lazy at the
time! But yes, you get lots of glass splinters if you don't brush the
dust away carefully.
