No wax on glass ever! I'd say you found the culprit

Service centre just polished my windscreen. It was mutually accepted that it probably would not get rid of a large stone chip (so, in some ways a waste of money) but, apart from that... wow, it is clean and smooth!

Sadly, Chennai is seriously lacking in rain for real-life testing just now.

Any wax will cause the haze. I used the Proklear glass treatment two monsoons ago. Nice beads of water that fly off the windscreen at high speeds, almost no need to use wipers -- fine. But haze after wiper blade does its job-- no good ! Disappears instantly, but still irritating. In your case it can be either Proklear or the Formula 1 wax, I think ! The lesson I learnt is to simply drop a piece of body soap (the last bit you cannot use) into the washer fluid tank -- free and does the job adequately !

Hmm... so now I have a windscreen which is mostly not too bad. A perfect test bed! so I can try out one of "nano" glass treatments. If it is good, then do the same on the new screen, whenever that happens.
