The glass is no problem, just use any glass cleaner.

I just use the chamois and sudsy car soap water.

Trick is to dry it so no water streaks appear.


The rear plastic window is another story altogether.

I use a liquid vinyl conditioner, cleaner, and restoration product.

It will never have the optical quality of glass but its clear enough to get the job done.

Novus

Another excellent product for the rear window is Plexus

I user Stoner's Invisible Glass and it works well. Use a CLEAN microfiber towel and use that particular towel for glass only.

If you want to really get it clean:

- Wash as normal
- Clay bar (glass specific)
- Griot's Garage glass polish applied with a random orbit

I tried the glass clay bar and I can't tell if it did anything... not that it was THAT dirty to require clay bar to begin with.

The clay bar is PREP for the polish(applied with a random orbit) which definitively does something.
