Help with getting my windshield clean

I don't know what the hell happened to my front glass, but I can't get it clean. I've used 6 different glass cleaners, alcohol, amonia. I tried the clay bar for glass. Inside and out has some kind of greasy or hazy film on it. It looks clean until I get into sumlight in the morning and the inside and out has this stupid haze. Any suggestions. This is really pissing me off.

I know exactly how you feel. Honestly I've never been good with the windshield, specifically the inside but I use just a damp cloth to clean it. In your case the only other thing I could think of is some form of a mild solvent if you think it's something on the glass. Preferrably something that doesn't smell too much.

The only other thing I can think of is 409, that shit works great on my glass shower doors and it could help. But it's smelly so do it with all the windows open and only spray on to the cloth.

Maybe try something like Dawn or a light citrus wash on a sponge first to strip off whatever is on there. Could even try claybar. Sounds like you have some kind of grease or something on it. I would hesitate spraying 409 if you are tinted at all, that stuff doesn't play well with tint.

I use Invisible Glass and one of these http://www.detailedimage.com/DI-Micr...02/16-x-12-S1/ and it always works fine for me.

Used Invisible Glass. Didn't work either. If ammonia won't clean it, I'm not sure if there is anything that will.

My experience with a haze.........just hit it with a dry microfiber towel. Not sure its the same type of haze, but the dry microfiber will just take whatever is on there, for me, and its nice and clean again.
