Did you try vinegar and water? or try this...
Here's something shown to me by an Auto detail guy, He's been in the Business for 20 years that I know of so I was interested in his advice on clean windshields. Get some Steel wool, # 0000, or super fine, and pick up some Automotive Cleaner-wax. Take a piece of the Steel wool and put a generous amount of the cleaner on it AND the Windshield, now VERY GENTLY use a swirl or circular motion and "polish" your windows, after you do an area you just buff it out like you would a cars painted surface. Take your time and do small sections at a time, I generally do mine in 1/4's. After you have buffed your windshield clean, use some Rain-X and give it a coating. You'll be amazed at how clean it comes out, and the Rain-X not only helps with water but also bird droppings, tree sap, etc. I know this sounds like an invitation for tons of scratches and I was skeptical until I watched this guy do it on a customers car. I've been doing this with my windshield for at least 10 years now, and not a single scratch. Hope this helps.

you need 3 things,

1). clear coat buffing compound
2). paper towels
3). about 10 minutes of your time

I went along similar line to what LuvMyTJ said. Except I used #000 steel wool and some plain old turtle wax. It takes a little while, but the results are amazing. Here is some before and after pics that I took of my rear windows.

BEFORE


AFTER


All I did was rub a thin layer of wax on the window and then buffed it off with the steel wool. Then after you are done clean it with a good window cleaner. I recommend "Stoner's Invisible Glass" and then treat with RainX. At first I was skeptical taking steel wool to my windows, but as you can see from the results I got; It DOES work.

it almost looks like something in the soap you guys use... Just the way it ran, I can honestly say I've never had that happen... I just have a pitted windshield from the original owner sniffing tail pipe on the highway.

Hard water leaves those mineral streaks. White vinegar with microfiber cloth or newspaper will get it off. It is all work no matter what you do. I try to hire someone else and then tell them how to do it. This works real well especiall since I cut my fingers off.
