Use granulated Dishwasher Dish washing soap (Cascade or similar) to wash the spots off. Do not dissolve the granules. pick the granules up with a damp sponge and scrub the spots off.
Then coat the glass with "Skin So Soft" lotion.
Good Luck,
Jerry

Thank you for your responses to my questions. My husband just ordered a similar product for whole-house softner and i will give both the other suggestions a try. Had no idea hard water would cause this many problems! Happy hoildays

We have been using an "On the Go" water softener for over a year. Wouldn't be without it. Check out our Blog, I did a piece on the unit, its use and care, as well as installation.

A solution of white vinegar and water will remove hard water spots from most surfaces. We spend two summers in an area irrigated with hard water (the lawns and our coach got sprinkled 3-4 times a week) and vinegar and water is what everybody used to get the water spots off. If it builds up, you may need a 50/50 solution, but mostly we used about 20% vinegar. I still carry a vinegar & water solution in a spray bottle and use it to touch up the coach exterior when washing is not allowed. Works great, but it also tends to remove the wax.

RV Roamer, have tried the vinegar, both mixed and straight with no success, although it has always worked before. This is some extremely hard water, lol, guess could bottle it for a weapon!

Arm & Hammer Clean Shower should work. Spray it on and let it drip dry.
