Water spots on windows

What is the best way to get water spots off the windows. I have tried CLR, vinegar, and some kind of glass polish stuff! Anyone have any luck with something they would like to pass along?

Water spots on windows

I don't know how bad it is, never dealt with this to be honest. But I would think if that stuff isn't working then why couldn't you buff it out with a buffer and some compounds and polishing compounds?

Re: Water spots on windows

Worried about scratches in the glass from a compound. Truck had the spots when I bought it. First time I have ever dealt with it myself.

Water spots on windows

True. Have u searched for auto glass cleaning agents? Idk I guess last resort is replace it if it can't be cleaned off but there's gotta be a way. Hell maybe call a windshield replant company and ask how much they'd charge and what they would use to clean it. Then go buy it yourself lol

Don't know what the last polish you used was, but this stuff is the absolute best at getting rid of hard water spots! For the tough ones, I use a lil' bit of #0000 Steel wool and it works great.

I have never needed to use it, but they have a "heavier duty" acid cleaner as well, but I think for that you have to go to an actual distributor for

I used a paint finish grade clay bar from Griot's Garage. It took the spots away no problem. I think (don't quote me though) Griot's has a window specific clay bar. After clay barring the windows I then finish up with Rain-X which helps the water spots from forming in the first place.

rain x wipers are the way to go too, keeps a good film all over the windshield. Driving on the highway or any speeds of 55 plus I don't need to have my wipers on, it's nice.

Re: Water spots on windows

Thanks for the info. I will probably order the clay bar. I started using the Bosh Icon wipers. A little expensive but man they work friggen awesome! I use rainx on my windshield but the spots are on the side and rear windows. I will rainx them once the spots are gone.
