    As you say, the glass is not dirty, it's damaged. Cleaning only works if it's dirty. You need to replace it.

    I'm just going by what you are telling me. If you are telling me it's not dirty, it's damaged, I'm going to reply that cleaning it isn't the answer.

    Corroded means its surface is etched, that's damaged by me.

    Get some glass polish (or jewelers rouge), a drill and polishing ball. Mother's or MaGuires makes both. Do not stay in one place very long or you will distort the glass. You will probably not get all of the etching out, but you can improve on the situation.
