    could be you need to change your pollen filter and check the drain holes arent blocked up with dead leaves etc

    If it's a hazy film, as opposed to condensation, then it's due to the 'vapours' given off by the plastic trim on the dash. All you can do really is keep giving it a regular clean with glass polish etc.

    do either smoke in ur car?? and if u have had a front screen replaced their could be a prob with the bond line inwich holds the screen in so water/moisture can get in just have look mate polish on interior glass can put a film on it where as a good window cleaner is the best i work for rac autowindscreens so we get to sort alot of this. however we use some of i think the best glass cleaner out its fantastic will work alot better than polish. im sure u will have 1 of our fitting centres near u so pop in with spray bottle and we will sort u some out. (for free) every1 loves free

    How long after a clean until it hazes again?

    I clean mine with a damp MF with a bit of Megs APC on it. I then use AG window polish.
