A "wash and wax" type car shampoo should make it slightly better, did for me.

JW, I wouldn't use a paper towel of any type on a screen or lens. They are quite abrasive due to the pulp fibres (even the softest Andrex). May be OK on plain glass, but will eventually affect anything coated. Lint-free cloth every time!

So is there a safe solven that will remove the film, but not damage the glass/plasic?
