inside windscreen grasy
#1
The inside of my windscreen has a waxy/greasy film on it . makes it hard to drive into a low sun . Cool   tried a glass polish made it worse I think ,  even resorted to cellulose thinners  it left a bloom nearly as bad as the greasy stuff.
 It may have been polished with a wax polish at one time or a silicon substance. tried other spray on stuff which was water based but not much good. That "fast Glass " by autoglyn I think,  didn't make much of an impression on it.  
 So can anyone recommend  a good cleaner that works ? Huh

Dont laugh but newspaper works very well or any kind of normal paper, you will be surprised how much sh1t it removes.

Thanks for the suggestions , heres my take on them

 "newspaper works very well "   
 Any particular one , a highbrow or a high st. rag ?, the sun might be viewed as dirty and I,m trying to clean. [Image: wink.png].  I thought of paper and vinegar so tried an empty chip poke , now smells like the chippy down the road.  

  7 /10  for performance

 6/10 for imagination  0/10 for performance


" Meths works for me "    
Neat or watered down ? I ran out of meths last week after trying it and split some in my mouth and before I knew it the bottle  was empty !  Dodgy 

1/10 for health reasons  6/10 for performance


" Ammonia "
Found a cleaner with ammonia in it and tried that , didn't  taste it  but it seems to shift the grease/wax. Big Grin

9/10 for performance

Hi - try https://www.homecareessentials.co.uk/pro.../stx547830 

That worked for us in a similar situation.

Newspapers? Yup - used to polish the brasses on a boat with those, get the worst of the crud off with newspaper then buff off with the proverbial 'lint free cloth'

Didn't know they still made Windowlene, IRC they had a catchy tune on the ads for it didn't they ?
( Or is it the meths interfering with my memory ?)
