I would think that once the glass is clean it should stay that way for some time (unless you smoke in the car). Is there something in the vehicle that could be outgassing?... or maybe something in your environment causing a film to develop on the glass?Neither seem to last more than a couple of days at best...
I don't smoke (nor does anyone else that might use my car - there's only 3 of us.
The aircon doesn't work and is never used anyway - and there's nothing else that can create a gas except the wife and daughters farts...
I get moisture inside from somewhere - until recently there was an issue with water getting in through the pollen filter and trickling into the footwell but I have fixed that, so I cant think what else it could be.
3 days ago I used Autoglym and now 3 nights later the haze is back....
I'm going to try a coouple of different products this week to see if anything changes the outcome for longer after use.
not sure if they have this over in UK or not..
the aerosol is what you want
spray on microfiber, wipe on glass, turn microfiber to dry side, wipe off, no streaks
@Paul Iddon Before you clean, take a scent-free paper towel or cloth, and rub it hard on the windshield where the defroster vent hits it. Have the most sensitive nose on the household give it a sniff and sere if it smells like your car's antifreeze. Even a tiny slow occasional drop of a leak on the heater core will make your windows seem like they're smeared with nicotine or vaseline, and no normal glass cleaner will get it off. Ammonia and vinegar don't cut it either. I've recently heard that cleaning with a grease-cutting soap (like your washing-up liquid) is supposed to work for this although you may have to wash and dry several times to get it all off. It's supposed to work equally well for nicotine.
The glass cleaner @dr_ramoray speaks of is what my windshield installer used, but they didn't do a good job with it when they put my windshield in a couple weeks ago. Even though my glass is brand new it has something greasy on it right out of the wrapper and I'm going to give it a go in a day or two. I'll post the results here about how well the washing-up liquid works for me, and I'll be finishing up with the aerosol "Invisible Glass" which I normally use.
Are you sure that the haze in your image is not from water droplets in the air between the car and the lamp?
Does look to me like it is outside, and just caused by the damp weather.It's still there after wipers and demisters have been used. I have a heated front windscreen.
Can't wipe the glass on the inside before every journey to remove owt.
But my old tub isn't good for moisture....
