windscreen film

Firstly I hope Im posting in the right section.

Have a foggy film on the outside of the windscreen whenever it gets wet. It has a pattern on it must be where the water has run down in the rain. Ive attached a photo.

Have tried scrubbing it using detergent, toothpaste as an abrasive and vinegar to try and break it up but nothing fetches it off.

I dont use wax to clean.

Are there any suggestions what might have caused it? And what I can use to try and get it off?

Thanks I'll have a look for clearalex. No flue pipes near, theres nothing overhanging like trees etc. Just in the open. Its been there for a long time but nothing I try shifts it. Even straight after washing you can see the water droplets form into that same pattern on the glass, like its got coated with something.

Re: windscreen film

How about trying an alcohol based solvent like methylated spirits.

Don't take without giving in return
