Put your hand in a plastic sandwich bag and run your fingertips slightly over the surface to locate the contamination. Then use a glass polish on the spot. Follow with a strong cleaner.

I've used Groit's Garage fine glass polish in the past to remove water spots from the windshield:

This is a great trick and what I like to use as a cleaner is white wine vinegar mixed 50/50 with water...soak a rag and let set on the windshield spread out for a few minutes then wash of with soapy water that should take any crap off the window...a good chemical polish is what I would follow up with or glass polish that's a chemical polish

Denatured alcohol is the best for getting stuff off glass.

Seems like I've heard of using Klasse AIO on glass - I haven't done it - but it does make sense. It is a chemical cleaner that should remove the same crap from windows as paint.

This glass cleaner (Glass Scrub***8482;) removes insect smear, road oils, mineral deposits, lime scale, tree sap and more. A heavy-duty, cream cleanser that deep cleans auto glass safely and effectively without strong acids, alkalis, phosphates or solvents. It is specifically formulated to clean glass without scratching. The best time to use Glass Scrub is after you've washed the car but before you dry it. The glass must still be wet. I apply a small amount of product on a folded Glass Cleaning Cloth rubbing the glass in circular motions making sure to apply to all areas thoroughly. Flip the cloth to a clean dry surface and rub again. http://properautocare.com

(DP High Performance Glass Restorer)This thick citrus-based cream safely pulls contaminants out of the glass, including alkaline mineral deposits, and then smoothes out etched glass www.autogeek.org
