Suggestions for cleaning windshield?

We have a 2006 Minnie Winnie with white fiberglass on the outside. When it rains and we're out and about (it's under cover at home), water drips from the cab-over onto the windshield glass and leaves multiple barely visible white streaks. I have tried to remove them using soap and water, glass cleaner, lacquer thinner, etc., but without success.

Any suggestions?

NoStreek Glass and Silver Polish made by Gel Gloss. I learned about on this site. It's the best glass cleaner I've ever used…hands down. Very easy to use and works amazingly well. I buy it on Amazon.

cheers,
Joopy

I'm sorry, I thought the streaks were on the paint. White vinegar and 0000 steal wool works wonders on glass, for water spots and probably your streaks.

if you have a rubber roof keep it clean and treated annd that should minimize streaking. I have not used it on glass, but I would think that the black streak remover from wal-mart or an rv store would work also.

Steel wool would clean it off ok but be careful of leaving any steel wool particles on painted surfaces when they get wet they will rust and leave small rust stains.

Thanks all for the thoughts and suggestions. Going to get some "stuff" and apply the elbow grease. BTW, I'm dealing with a white fiberglass cab-over not rubber, on this model, and the stains I would like to remove are only evident on the windshield.

Hi Vince, If you are going to use "elbow" grease with steel wool make sure you ONLY use 0000 steel wool! Do not use anything more abrasive (anything with LESS 0's) as it will scratch your windshield. Good-luck.

Sounds like your fiberglass roof is chalking...scrub it good and use 3M 303 on it ( think that is the name) or a good wax if you are energetic....

Once you get them cleaned off, wax or use rain-x on your windshield and streaks and bugs will come off a lot easier.
