Ghost Image of Window Sticker

I can see a ghost image of my window sticker in certain weather conditions. I have cleaned the windshield multiple times and it's still there. Anyone else have this issue and know how to correct it?

you are going to think I'm crazy- but my dad has always used coke. If you put coca cola on a paper towel and go over it and wash after wards with soap and water- it works- you may have to repeat the process 2-3 times if it is bad. hope it fixes your problem!

Maybe try cleaning with vinegar.

If that doesn't work, I'd resort to a polish.

I've got the same issue/feature with my windshield - the perma-sticker. I can't see it unless the window fogs up inside or I spray Invisible Glass on it when I'm cleaning. I think it's kind of cool so I'm not trying to hard to make it disappear, yet.

We get that on the upper right windshield. Only when it fogs up.
I think it's kinda cool!
We are leaving the option open to call TAPS if we feel the need.

Thanks for the update.

It sounds like there might be a "film" of some type? How's about a polish?
