Default Cleaning surface of photographs

Whats the best way to clean the surface of glossy (and matte)

I have some I have printed myself (B&W) that have a few fingerprints I
would like to remove. I did try using a tissue but found that it made
some scatches on it.

Also I have some old B&W Skylab photos from the 70's that have a few
dirt marks on them. Again what the best way to clean them?

BTW. I think I remember hearing sometime ago on TV that you can use
Silver polish. Have I got that right?
