'07 Accord sedan with defroster wires on inside of rear glass. What's
the recommended way to clean the glass without damaging the wires?

Spray window cleaner on window, wipe off and buff to a shine.

Those "wires" are pretty tough. Stay away from sandpaper, steel wool, and
chisels, and you're fine with whatever you use.

Maybe. But those "wires" do look like paint, so it would be natural for
some to assume the wires may be easily dissolved or damaged.

I have seen some cars where there are breaks to the defroster grid, but
it is usually on much older vehicles.

I have also seen a few that have been repaired with the paint-on kits,
and the repair has never looked very good. On my 1978 Datsun 280Z, I
just took a razor blade and scraped the entire grid off.
