It may be your technique which needs work. Using two CLEAN micro-fiber cleaning cloths is a good way to go. You'll want to use one which has a short nap and the other will be a waffle weave pattern one. Something like these: Short nap: Waffle weave: The first one you use for cleaning with your choice of cleaning solution. The first key is to not use ...
Crumpled newspaper is my go-to for making glass look flawless. It removes streaks that many towels will leave behind.
All the suggestions made so far are very good. There are different ways to cut the grease off the windshield. The issue I always found with either ammonia or alcohol based cleaners is that they evaporate very quickly and leave a film and part of the grease behind.

I think the film on the glass comes from the heaters, so it's all kinds of oil and plastic molecules the hot air picks up in the ducts. They come in a plastic cylinder with a slit in the top, so ...
Clean cloth and a bowl of lukewarm water with a solid dose of dishwashing liquid. That did the trick for me.
Spray or with a help of a towel apply talcum powder all over the windshield. (Just light dusting ) Let it is stay for a minute. The talcum powder always sticks on grime , it will fall off from clean spaces. Now wipe off thoroughly with a towel. You may need to repeat this a couple of times . Vaccume the inside when you are finished.
