Oops I used a wheel spray on the inside of windscreen

I have a confession and itís bloody embarrassing... 18th months ago on a Sunday I decided to give my car a good clean inside and out.
I used a strong smelling spray for my alloy wheels (forget which one) then placed it on the floor near the car with the rest of the cleaning gear. 30 minutes later I started to clean the windows inside but I had to go to the loo so put the bottle down on the floor. I came back out picked up what I thought was the glass cleaner ,after 10 seconds spraying the inside i had difficulty in breathing, looked at the bottle and it was the alloy wheel cleaner !
After getting my breath back I went to wipe the spray of the window but it had dried to the glass and it didnít come off.
Itís right at the bottom of the screen but sometimes I can see it and drives me mad.
What can I use to get rid of it please.
Thanks

I assume you have used all the usual things? Glass cleaner, APC?

You could maybe washing it with your bodywork shampoo. Putting some on a cloth and then rinsing with another cloth?
Put a towel down on your dash obviously.

Can I just say I sympathise with you. Some manufacturers use similar bottles and packaging for different products and it's really easy to pick up the wrong one.
Some good tips above for you to try, Good luck.

I use bar keepers friend on my external glass when prepping for a coating. It should work inside obviously if you've not tried it yet.

I only found out about it last year I think - having had issues with a failed coating on the windscreen applied via dealer (before I got the car) - worked where everything else didn't.

I'd recommend getting the powder version, you can then make up as much as you need and as strong as you need
