Water Spots on windows ??

Greetings ,

Just curious if you guys know of any ways to get water spots off the windows. They seem to be permanent and as I am OCD they really bother me. Thanks in advance !

Been using Megs swirl x and a terry cloth plus a lot of elbow grease. It can surely remove those stains.

Another method is using vinegar. It can be diluted in water if you think its to strong.

What we do at work is first we try rubbing compound and steel wool and work in sections. If that doesn't work then we will usually acid bath the windows but you have to be careful to not allow the acid to sot too long or it will burn the glass. We get tons of cars that have hard water damage on them and most of the time we can get it fixed but if the hard water from say a sprinkler has just sat on the window baking in the sun for god knows how long it can permanently be etched into the glass

I've detailed for a long time profesionally. Go to home depot and buy "0000" "quad zero" steel wool. Spray the window down with automotive window spray (not windex) and rub the window with the steel wool.

It's a detailers trick. The super fine 0000 acts like a polish for the windows. Obviously if you have window tint on the inside DO NOT use this method on the interior.

The only thing that has EVER worked for me is something called CERAMA -BRYTE - stove top cleaner which you can buy at Lowes or Home Depot. Contains citric acid I believe. Apply to cool glass using a waxing pad. Still requires heavy doses of elbow grease but does the job. Has never failed me on any car. Give it a try.

+1 on 0000 Steel Wool, available at your local hardware store. I started using Stoner Invisible Glass few years back and I've never looked back since.
