I found this to work really well. First get some light/soft steel wool then really wet the window with glass cleaner. Next start rubbing the window with the wool in a circular motion. Re-wet the window if needed. Then when it starts feeling nice and smooth take some paper or a rag and wipe the window clean. And that will take any road tar, tree sap, paint fumes, etc off your windows.

Keep in mind not to do this on the inside of any rear window that has defrost or that could damage the electic wire.

Also to help keep gunk from sticking to your windows, try waxing them with a good paint wax. Just don't do the front other wise your wipers may not wipe your window too good.

Hope this helps someone :)
