I spray some of this on the screen before washing it.
Get rid of all grease, grime and daily contaminants


Only downside is it absolutely stinks

Angelwax Vision! The only glass cleaner I use now. I use clarity in the screen wash and H2GO as a rain repelent. The best I have ever tried!

If itís oil of some sort, itíll need a degreaser of some sort. Iíd probably just use fairy liquid neat in modest amounts then rinse it all off. Obviously, never wash your car with fairy liquid, but localised application to the windscreen should be fine

Try this (super cleaning windscreen)


This really works with the single wiper, mine glides across now. It used to stick & squeak on the edge even after a new blade and stripping/regreasing the wiper itself.

Shaving foam all over and then systematically pull it off with a plastic razor blade. That's clean and then treat with your choice of repellent (RainX, Duxback etc).
