Couple of suggestions;

Take your vehicle to a windscreen specialist to assess if there is a manufacturing defect with it.

Get the glass professionally cleaned, ,unfortunately, getting the glass 100% streak free is my Achilles Heel when detailing my vehicle. If that does the trick, find out what products, or procedure they use to achieve it. Every day is a school day!

I used rubbing alcohol (isopropyl 70%) to remove the sticky residue from a previously applied window tint, which may be worth a bash.
Since every day is school day, I learned this from the window tinter - never clean tinted windows with ammonia based cleaners! Ammonia is what they use to remove old tinting.

the defrost (cold) will clear it but burrr it gets cold inside the car
Well now, the defrost on heat clears it up good and fast, so I've recently discovered. Also, it (heat) clears it on the inside and outside. I've never in my lifetime used or heard of using heat as defrost, it's always been to use cold air to make the glass cold on the inside as it is on the outside (in cold weather). Anyway, I still need and want to clean the windows to try to resolve the problem and not just use the defrost as a fix.

Wait, you NEVER used heat to defrost?!? I've ONLY ever used heat. When you're 16 and the car has been sitting outside all night, and there is 1/8" of thick ice on the outside, I'd never consider using cold air to try and remove that frost. Been using heat ever since.

Hi heat- hi airflow, AND AC ON - I work in commerical bldg HVAC systems - that is the way to remove moisture.
(of course when the car is not warmed up to temp it does nto work as well)

I'm from the deeeep South USA, snow? ice? what's that? It's so hot here all of the time that we rarely use heat. Today, December, it's the winter season and it's 80 degrees outside. However, yes, lesson learned in mid-life to use heat instead of a/c for defrost but the a/c is effective too sometimes.
