a liquid wax and super fine steel wool will take water spots right off of the windows.

try some ssr1, pws, or, if you want some local cleaners, go w/ whats been suggested already, clr, barkeepers friend, etc .Just make sure to wash afterwards and avoid getting those on your paint :)

i had some bad ones on my trk and had to use steel wool with bar keepers friend. i worked in the bar keepers with the wet steel wool and then rinsed it with the hose, dried with terry towel and then cleaned with window cleaner and they looked like new.

Id have to agree, I watched John clean his windows with just about everything you could try. This worked great.

I'm in the process of doing some demo videos featuring Diamondite glass systems and I have to admit that their Glasswork System Kit ( http://autogeek.net/diamondite-glasswork-kit.html ) works really well at removing water spots off window.

Here is a before and after shot:






Autogeek is also offering 15% off this weekend...use code MEMORIAL07

but those are not the permanant "hard" water spots that are etched into the glass. those look like you just didnt dry your car and then used the system. i bet they would come off with norm glass cleaner. you need to find some abused windows to really test it.

Think what you want, but they actually were "hard" water spots from being hit from sprinklers for a couple of weeks while I was on vacation.

I actually did test it on many different types of glass with various degrees of etching and it preformed quite well with all of them.

Here is an example on some house windows:

After IG and vinegar

touche :whip:

usually the white calcium deposits come off fairly easily, in my experiance. i have had problems with the dark circles that remain if they sit on there too long though. maybe ill give that system a try, my bros s10 has some spots on the back window that drive me crazy every time he comes over.
