use metho spirits diluted with water, give it a good clean n buff, the agents in metho will remove them, just remember use spirits and not turps :P ones paint friendly, the other, not so much ;). Id also recomend puttin some in ur washer bottle :P

hey cooki_monsta

wouldn't the alcohol in metho (albeit diluted) perish the rubber around the windscreens?

I'm not having a go, just wondering since that would be reason enough not to use it.

Use the polish you use to polish your paint work and give the glass the good hard polish you might need to do it a couple of times but then do it each time you polish your car you will notice the fallout will no longer stick to the glass and the water will bead off nicely when it does rain

My cars covered in some kinda dust from work that cant be removed with a wash, but was told some stuff from super cheap helps.
Its called Meguiars Quik Clay.
Uses a spray and a block of clay to remove crap.
Tree sap mist.
Paint overspray
Road contaminants
Airborne salts.

Worked on my window too.
