Regarding cleaning auto glass with steel wool, I know it works really well, but users should be aware of a downside. The steel particles/dust breaking off the pad as it's used will rust very quickly, potentially starting issues that may be in difficult to see out of the way places. I know there are going to be people who have been using this process without issue for years, but for those not feeling so lucky, there is another product that works just as well - with no possibility of rust. Bronze wool, available anywhere marine supplies are sold, or Amazon.

Be aware that link is for "Fine"...not "quadruple ought"....it might be too rough and scratch surfaces. I don't know about glass, but 0000 is the only thing I consider safe on blued steel. I don't see any listing for 0000 bronze wool?

It's fine enough for glass for sure. Not familiar with blued steel, but have enough confidence to try it if/when it might ever be required. As regular steel wool has a habit of seeking out and filling microscopic pores in things made of steel, and turning to rust later, the bronze wool would work out much better in that application. Enough better to make it worth a try here for me anyway. -Al

2 products come to mind for me. Maguires makes a hard water spot remover. Used it recently on the side of our mh when sprinklers left spots. Another is a spray on product called Just Ducky. We used it on our boat that was on Lake Mead all summer. Worlds hardest water on earth!
Both products worked for us. Just Ducky was the easiest. Both items can be bought from Amazon.

etching

This past January , I purchased a 2008 View from Florida, there is something about the fl. weather that causes the glass to etch, maybe its the ocean salt it's not water spots we are talking about,that is easy to solve.
I tried everything I could imagine , then it dawned on me i had the fix after all. It's from Zaino brothers, it's called CLEAR-VIEW GLASS POLISH.

It removes acid rain and water spots. Follow the instructions and scrub hard.
I applied it by hand ,you can use a buffer if you wish.
This stuff is not cheap ,but it doe's the job.
I 'm new to this site ,and don't know how to attach pics ,or i would show the before and after pics.
They have a full line of automotive products.

Their web site is :Zaino Store
