Good way to remove sand film from water surface?

The title sums this one up pretty well. I recently setup a tank with sand substrate and the surface is covered in this sand film and hasn't cleared up. Any suggestions?

Newspaper or paper towels......That sums it up pretty well.

I just use a fish net to scoop it up and then rinse it out really well so there isn't any leftovers in it. It works well for me.
