For the glass, get some 0000 grade wirewool and soak it in either car shampoo or APC, then rub it over your windscreen. It won't scratch but will remove any contamination. After that I'd give the...

Yep, that's the ones. if I get chance I'll take a photo tomorrow. They work perfectly fine in my experience. I've done leather seats, headlining, steering wheel and parcel shelf with them.

I always got good results from my bottle of Gold Class. It does leave a lot behind after the wash but if you just want to get the dirt off and add some shine, it can bring the car up well.
