Dust and fingerprint removal - bottles

Any quick tips on how to remove dust and thumbprints from glass? It's a constant pain - my sister is in the wine business and occasionally asks me to take images of a bottle, however, they are often ugly; dusty without charm, have thumbprints from fat fingers, you get the idea.

I use much of the techniques described in the light science and magic book, and we're happy with the results otherwise.

The bottle does not necessarily need to be sellable after the shoot, so if there's some wild technique to bring out the best in glass, like dipping it in airplane fuel or something like that, that's perfectly OK
