Sometimes, Alchol or Viniger may do the trick. If not use a 1/1 ratio of Amonia and Water.

Windex with Vinegar.. it's clear, and has a yellow label and top. It's the only stuff I've ever used that leaves no streaks... but you have to wipe the window down 2 or 3 times. It tends to coat the junk on the window and if you don't get it off, it films. But when you get it all off, it's crystal clear.

oh, and use crumpled newspaper to wipe the windshield clean. a trick used by a lot of professionals. i dont know exactly why, but it gets the job done quite well.

If you have any tint on do not use Alchol... I use some white can says Glass Cleaner in blue works great
