Default !! can't get inside of windshield clean...

Yeah, it looks clean when you look at the car...2017 TTS, no smoking, no nothin except driving it. But with the garage door open behind the car and looking through the windshield from the front, it looks smeared and cloudy..it's probably the off gassing?
I tried the Ettore glass cleaner, I tried ..Trutle wax class cleaner, I tried white vinegar, and I tried dish soap..diluted and scrubbed. Not much of a change...I might be obsessing ( yes, I am ) but it is my kingdom, the wife has the house..I don't meet her standards cleaning there.
Advice?..... I know, it's worth what I pay for it.

I use Shine Supply “Sun Shine” glass cleaner, per their recommended dilution rate. Working great for me.

Thanks Overated....I just went back with another rag damp with dish soap mixture...scrubbed it and wiped it off with a micro fleece rag...it looks pretty good. After a workout with 5 different solutions, I may just break down and get some "Sun Shine" if it starts looking the way it did before my Workout! of scrubbing the inside windshield glass...oy.

I have been very happy with Nanolex Glass Cleaner.

One tip on cleaning the interior glass is to spray the product on your microfiber towel directly and then clean the glass. Don't spay the product on the glass directly as you will get a lot of residue on the dashboard

Using the proper Microfiber towel is key on glass. The best I have used are these from Griot's Garage

And this set makes getting into the tight corners a breeze.
