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.

You can actually get quite a few very good waxes for up to £35 so I wouldn't worry about your budget in that sense, it's perfectly healthy for a wax.
