Window Stains?

I have some nasty stains on my window that i cant seem to remove. They are on the inside of the window too so im questioning if i use a certain product if ill mess it up. Its the front windshield btw. And for the outside, is it safe to use a soft steel wool to buff the windows? i notice embedded water spots on them.

*invisible glass didnt work, spray detailer didnt work, little bit of elbow grease and spit didnt work :P

Interesting. I have something that looks similar on my rear window. I suspect it might be from autoglym glass polish that I failed to fully remove when i cleaned by car the other weekend. Have you used a glass paste product?

I'm going to see if more of the same stuff can take it off--invisible glass already failed.

Interested to hear if you have any success. I'd try clay before steel wool, assuming you don't have tints.

Clay seems like a great idea actually, ill try that later. And im just concerned in using steel wool on the inside of the window. But im going to use it on the outside soon

update: clay didnt work
