Default Query - Remove dirt / accumlated dust from glass

The person who cleans the car is away for last 2 - 3 days. I notice some kind of dust that is a bit stuck to the window glass and is not easily getting wiped with cloth. I don't know what it is but looks like some fine sand or stuff like that.
Can anyone suggest how it can be cleaned without applying much pressure? Do you get any specific liquids / car wash soap etc that can gently pull it out from the glass?

Lots of water and old newspaper (Black and white) - the cheaper the better. Use Colin or equivalent after the glass is cleaned with newspaper.

the Plant serum or extract is also sometimes difficult to remove once it dries use a little rubbing compound with you finger to remove. Rub it very lightly.

You can try any of the glass cleaners like colin. Else try soap oil, available at your neighbourhood service station, followed by colin or any other glass cleaner.

Rubbing compound also will work, as mentioned by Dadu.
