I noticed when I had my windshield replaced that the glass shop had a bottle of stuff that removes water spots but I can't remember what it was called. I've seen it at two different glass shops so I would think most glass shops would carry it.

I work in the auto glass industry in AUS.
In my experence I'm yet to see a product that will remove "etched" water marks.
What happens is the "acid" in the water drops becomes more and more concentrated as the water evaporates.
This "acid" then actually eats into the glass surface, giving the edge around the droplet a white apperence , just like real acid etch or sand blasted glass.
The only way , to my knowledge, to remove these marks is to machine polish the entire glass surface.
AS the side and rear glass is toughened , this is very time consuming and most likely as waste of time.

If all the above is BS ,let me know. I have a customer with a brand new tourist coach with the same problem on every piece of glass. I'll import the stuff and make a fortune.


If in doubt give it a clout
If at first you don't succeed , find a bigger hammer

Usually razor blades will work...but try #0000 steel wool and a lot of elbow grease. If that doesn't work, then you'll have to go to real glass polishing compound.

Have you tried scrubbing the glass with Bon Ami cleanser. This old time kitchen product does wonders for auto glass. GM ,arrghh, recomends it in their owners manuals.Can be found next to Comet or Ajax type products in most super markets
