Cleaning rear brake light window

So I am in the cleaning mood and I was wondering how do you all clean the window between the brake light? When driving at night I can see this film right where the brake light area is. Am I going to have to take down the plastic in the back or what?

Yup, the rear deck will have to come out. Frankly it's not worth my time to take it out to clean that area. It takes a lot of care and patience to put it back exactly how it was before.

exactly.... towel, or sock around a metal ruler that's flexible. Run it behind the light and it helps
