glass - cleaning/polishing?

Since completion of paint work on my car, quite a bit of overspray is evident on the windows. Suggestions for products/methods for cleaning the glass?

Spray windshield with water, use a clay bar then scrape off with a razor blade.

Clay Bar and window cleaner works great.

0000 steel wool and water or Window Cleaner will make your windshield sparkle. Use ONLY 0000. It WILL NOT scratch it make sure you are lubing the glass. I use it on my windows for tough jobs then clay bar when I wash the car. Clay baring wheels works great too.

look for the aggressive Clay Bar over the basic.
If you do need to use a razor be sure to keep the glass wet at all times.

If you have a polishing machine and compound, that will work too. Same process as polishing clear coat after wet sanding.....works great on glass (skip the wet sand step of course...).
