What causes this on my paint?

It's like a film. It's only where my cowl meets the windshield. It shimmers in the sunlight in blue and purple colors. It looks like when you see an oil spot in a parking lot after it rains- that purple/blue greasey look. It's not grease on my paint. It buffs out of the paint but comes back after awhile. Any ideas?

Are you putting Windex, Armorall or spraying any other cleaner nearby?

It's a Jeep thing...

no sir. The only thing that would touch it would be my washer fluid. If this is it, I surely hope it wont destroy my paint.

I used the orange deicer wiper fluid and it stained my paint. Doesn't look shiny it is just the orange color. I buffed and clay bared but to result. Still there. But I am getting my hood repainted soon as it has other problems. But I will never use that d-icer stuff again

It's rust thats inside and coming out and it makes that color when water gets on it. If you look at a trucks rear pannels over the wheel well, they start to rust and then the rust makes that color on top of the paint on the good paint next to it.
Jeepless at the moment but not for long...
