Default Glass cleaner, safe for heated windscreen

Is there such a thing? My 08 XKR has the heated front screen option. It occurred to me that maybe some glass cleaning products could damage the heating elements.

If this is a real risk on such screens then can someone suggest a good cleaner that won't do this?

While I am not sure about the heating elements, I would also expand this to include glass cleaners safe for tint as well. (no ammonia)

The heating elements are buried deep in the middle of the glass, far from any damage a cleaner might do.

No special glass cleaners for me, just a hot soapy microfiber as required followed by a clean dry one.....generally that's all that I find is needed.
But on the subject, I'd say pretty much as Mikey has already said

I agree with Mikey, usually the heating element is found in the middle of the glass. Our Pinnacle Crystal Clear Glass Cleaner with Water Repellent 32 oz. is perfectly safe for tinted windows meaning it is ammonia-free. Pinnacle Crystal Clear Glass Cleaner with Water Repellent
