Can anyone give me a solution for getting wax from a automatic car wash off a car windsheid? Mine seems to have a buildup and streaks so bad I almost can't see when I use the wipers.

I know if you pour straight coke from the bottle or can on your windshield it will remove the road film from the glass. I bet it would do the same with wax. It would be a cheap fix if it worked. Even if it didn't help the wax, the film will be gone and that will help the view.
Drive safely !
This might sound crazy, but i've had good results using ultra-fine steel wool. Glass is actually harder than metal.
The grade you need is called "0000". Try it first near an edge. You'll actually feel the effort needed lessen as the goop comes off.
We get road film on our windsheild which makes it hard to see through when it is raining so whenever we go on a trip or I know we will be driving in the rain, I scrub the windshield good with Greased Lightning. You can find it in the grocery store with the cleaning products. Spray it on the windshield and scrub hard with a damp rag. Then take the rag and rinse the windsheid with clear water. Then use windex or whatever you clean your windshield with and paper towels and clean as usual. You will find that when it's raining, your windsheld will be crystal clear making driving much safer.
Use nail polish remover which is acetone. Than clean with invisible glass cleaner
Someone once told me to use Brasso on the windshield and wipe rubbing alcohol down the wipers. However, I never tried it. Hope this works.
Rubbing alcohol works for me!!!

If someone have a solution how to clean my windshield please help me.
Dawn dish soap works for me. After clean wipers with with windex.
Wife's Z-4 windshield was terrible on rain. It was fix it today or new Z tomorrow. I think I can sleep tonight. From many years ago I had heard about using toothpaste as a cleaning agent. My problem was wax on the windshield. Put there by BMW dealer. You tube told me to use asetone (finger nail polish remover). I used it and it worked in getting wax off. I then picked up on another tip which worked with an old tip. It was to use household Bon Ami to clean the glass. It can polish/smooth the glass. Between each item I used a foaming glass cleaner which had been recommended in several reviews. I used Safelite Glass cleaner.
Took a little while but couldn't more pleased. Going to do it on my jeep tomorrow.
