    Glass Haze On Windshield

    Oh probably too much time on my hands...but I can't get my windshield glass clean. If I look at it with a bit of sun glare I can see it looks like faint vertical soap streaks. I have cleaned it with Vinegar, Windex, Dawn and alcohol both inside and out. It does seem to be in the wiper area.
