Streaks INSIDE windshield?

I just got my windshield replaced today because a big rock caused a large chip and 3 large cracks. The new windshield is the Lexus OEM windshield. Looks like the installer did an excellent job installing the windshield. However, when I went home and tried to clean it, it won't come clean! It appears that there are streaks actually INSIDE the two layers of glass, is this even possible? I clean from the outside, no change, I clean from the inside, no change. When looking at the glass from the inside, it appears that the streaks are on the outside, and when I look at the glass from the outside it looks like the streaks are on the inside. You can only see them in the right light, or if you shine a flashlight onto the windshield. Then it's really easy to see.

Guess I'm going back tomorrow to have them look at it again.

The best is to use newspaper, it comes out super clean and streak free. Sounds counter intuitive but try it next time.
+1 to this!
It actually works very well
i believe newspaper works well because it has ammonia in the ink, same ingredient in windex that makes it work well
