How to get sticky grease off of glass?

Any tips on how to get greasy residue off of glass? I just bought some delicate glass "shades" for some wall sconces I have. They are covered in something really tough to get off. I tried Windex and it got a little off. Then just soap and water and that got some more, but I could be here a long time trying different things unless someone has something a little more powerful. Thanks for the help! (can't use anything abrasive, it might hurt the finish so nothing baking soda)

    Washing them is the easy part. BUT what makes a hazy greasy-like film appear AFTER washing and drying the glasses, after a few months. It isn't dust, we do not smoke and I hate cooking with grease. It is such a mystery to me.

    Stanley degreaser works wonders. Very concentrated so a bottle will make several bottles which you can vary the strength.

    I use degreaser a lot! Especially on stains on clothes! I tried Oxyclean and Shout, but the degreaser got greasy chili stain out!
