Wipe the glass with #0000 steel wool. Then Windex. (Try it in a small corner first, I have seen a few windows on cars that have a plastic coating on them) As long as it's glass then no problem scrub away.

One of the old secrets that my dad taught me for window spot removal and scratch repair....tooth paste.... plain old white $.88 tooth paste. buff it in the pumice is just enough to gets swirls and spots out of a windshield.

X2 on the #0000 steel wool. RV Geeks has a video or two on how to do this properly:

Invisible Glass has always worked for me. Try also to clean the windows when they're not in direct sunlight.
