    always apply the polish / cleaner in one direction (i.e. up and down) and then remove it an the other (left to right) this way you will ensure you remove it all -

    if its smeary then it sounds like there still not compeltely clean or the product that your using isnt cutting through the grime

    Sounds like you might have some wax on the glass, I do it all the time and it makes the windows a right ******.
    Needs window cleaner with vinegar in it, to get it all off.
    A hate windows with a vengence , will try Deztroyers tip next time I do mine.

    Ps Missed you at Trax Ralph

    try cleaning the inside of the glass too

    other than that the vinegar tricks above and use a quick detailer in future to clean the glass (these also bead)
