Cleaning grease off tint

I had a window regulator break the other day. When I raised the window, I noticed there was grease on the tint. How can I safely clean this?

well the ammonia free one is ok, but doesn't have the strength of regular windex. but you should have told him the ammonia free one, so he didn't go and buy the regular one and mess up his tints
