Care to share more info.
Whether it's leftover oils that your normal car wash couldn't remove or stains which has etch into the glass?

What type of shampoo you're using? I'm thinking it's a wash & wax type and the wax is causing those.

More info or pictures would be nice.

Regards.

You park mostly in the open?
Wavy, then most probably water mark.
Use Tomcat, but make sure to remove it fast, don't let it dry on the glass...... smile_tongue.gif
