Try and use vinegar, it is an acid and cleans many things quite well. Inside of glass is nearly always a build up of formaldehyde evaporated out of the vinyls and seat trims.
You know that lovely new car smell which people seem to like, it is only poisoning you a little bit.

A simple and quick way to remove grease is to put some diluted baby shampoo in a spray bottle.

Possibly a type of adhesive/goo used to try to get a suction pad to stay on the windscreen in hot conditions? I used a clear pad from Mr Stickee at one stage & when I removed the dash cam I left a difficult to remove goo possibly like you describe. Pretty sure that eucalyptus oil made short work of it, so perhaps try that if other suggestions fail.

Citrus oil works for me, when there's a need to remove gummy adhesive coatings.

De-Solv-it, Sticky Spot and Stain Remover, 125ml bottle from Bunnings.

Oomph Glue and Stain Remover 500mL from Bunnings or Officeworks (cheaper at Bunnings).

Orange Power Spot & Goo Remover 110ml bottle from Woolworths.

Cheers, Ron.

I'll add Eucalyptus oil to the list
Works well on removing stickers and the sticky residue they leave as well.

Just be careful with what you use, if you have window tint (after market)..Home brand window cleaner is ok to use on tint..
If no tint...as mentioned.Eucalyptus oil is great!.. Just be persistent

Yep , if you have any 'aftermarket' window tint you should use nothing but what the tint installers use , that being clean water with a 10% metho mix .....
