I had a similar exsperience. I went to go uptown, but my window on the car was fogged. I tried the window washer with fluid and it went back and forth for a bit,but it did not work. I got a rag wet thinking it would just wipe off, but when i wiped the wet rag on the window it did not take it off, so i pushed a little harder and it slightly smeared. I tried dawn soap, that did not work, I tried bleach and that did not work, i tried that orange hand cleaner in a small area cause i did not want to scratch my windshield and that did not work. I then tried gasoline and that did not work, so i then tried to soak rags in dawn dishsoap and lay the rags to soak on the windshield for a half hour. That worked, but i had to scrub very hard in a small area to get it clean. I gave up. Later i took the same rags and soaked them in pop coke, that made it worse but turned the hardened stuff into like a gel that smeared the window. I soaked more rags in pop and let it sit on the window for an hour and i had used the soaked rags to rub the stuff and a dry rag to wipe off. That worked, but took me an hour to clean it and i had to throw away three dry rags and the towels soaked in pop. I think i figured it out. My car had been sitting for a bit and there were pine trees in the back. I figured maybe some of this pine tree sap got on the car, then the lawn was mowed, it got dust on the car windshield. Only question is, how does sap from pine trees get in the air to travel and collect on the cars windsheild and not only that, why would it ONLY collect on the windshield.
