Did a search for "anti-static glass cleaner". Found this: http://www.criticalcleaning.com/A166.htm

No idea if it is any good. If you try it let us know.

Ditto, the other product is for removing dust attracted to electronic product (static-electricity generally attracts dust like a magnet) Clean frequently and be especially sure to vacuum your electronic's (gently) dust is their biggest enemy next to heat. Dust gets into the heat vents and coats the components, which, in turn results in a dust coat buildup which causes heat not to dissipate properly.

Water beats heat and dust in the most likely to kill electronics catagory. :p

I just dust my black glass shelves myself. That seems to be enough, but I no longer have any 2 year old putting their fingers on everything after having them in their mouth. :lol:

To the OP - if it's new, it probably came with some sort of plastic film on the glass or was packaged by the static gremlins.

My experience with these items is that they retain quite a static charge which attracts dust like a magnet. I know of no secret method to discharge these things, but it seems that the charge will slowly dissipate (perhaps in a few weeks or few months) at which time it will be easier to keep "clean".
For glass shelves, I see nothing wrong with glass cleaner and paper towels.
