If they are particularly stubborn, wipe them down with vinegar to eat the deposits away.

If it's a matter of general spots after a wash, make sure you're not taking it into direct sun during/after washing. You can use some of the new super absorbent chamois or similar cloths to get better drying.

I have used Clay Bar on my windows but can't say whether it took off any water spots. I am fortunate that I do not have that problem.

It does make the glass pretty smooth though.

I'll give that glass stripper a try, thanks. I wonder if they carry it at Wal Mart?

I have clay barred the rear view mirrors. It took a bit, but it worked.
I am guessing since they are glass, it would work the same for the
windows.

I always used Barkeepers Friend which is a non abrasive cleasner type product. It gets all the dirt / gunk off without scratching. Seems to be sold all over, just google the name.

I used a spent chunk of clay bar to remove overspray from windows on my truck (dealer parked the truck beneath the vent from their bodyshop-jackasses). Worked great.

I bought this stuff at Wal Mart out in Hawaii that came in a white bottle and it works wonders. I'll get pics tomorrow for you. Stuff smells like toothpaste and icy hot mixed.

Got those really stubborn spots off my civic's windows after it sat out in the sun/rain/salty air for a year. I swear by the stuff.

This is really wierd. I posted a similar thread in wipe on wipe off forum but this isn't my thread. I appreciate all the info though.

I had that problem on a car I owned and an auto detailer told me to use very fine steel wool and a paste glass polish. It worked.

Water spots on glass

Had my wife's Pilot detailed recently, they used a professional water spot remover and rubbed lightly with AAAA steel wool. The remover was tan in color and consistancy of buttermilk. The remover came from a gallon can and was labeled "Water Spot Remover for Glass" not able to see the brand. Worked great, glass in clean and spot free.
