Cleaning acid-etched or sandblast-etched glass

I'm about to move into a house that has an etched glass door on a cabinet in the master bath. I've heard that it's very hard to clean fingerprints from etched glass. Is that true and if you have etched glass, how do you clean it?

I have drinking glasses with etching on them. I haven't noticed any difference with fingerprints on the etched parts.

It is very hard to clean etched glass with finger prints. Use windex and elbow grease. If the finger prints stay too long We usually have to re-etch to get them out. There are a few products that can seal the glass after etching, be careful though, as you don't want to apply something and have it make the glass clear again.

Are you saying I could apply a sealer to the new etched glass and that would help prevent the fingerprint problem?
