We a really strange mark on windscreen. All I can say it looks like leopard print all over it. Have tried different cleaners but keeps coming back. Not sure if it's marking from vaping in car but bloody stuff won't budge. Any ideas?

If that doesn't work try jewellers rouge.

Methylated spirits is also available from most DIY stores and camping supplies stores.

I first started putting meths in my old beetle windscreen washer in the early 60s when I was stationed in Germany it never froze just added some water we had gallons of it.just put some on a rag and rub the windscreen it cleans it a treat you can get a wee bus into the bargain

Diluted meths and a lot of elbow grease was always the best choice, but lately I have been using Comma's windscreen cleaner with excellent results. It seems to be a French chalk solution (much like the old Kaolin and Morphine from the chemist) which I imagine acts as a fine abrasive on glass. Trouble is, I don't know if Comma still sells it.
