We boat at Lake Havasu which has very hard water and after a week of waterspoting, Vinegar and water does the trick.

Glass Scrub works fantastic. I have had hard water spots on my windows that nothing would touch, This stuff works! I can't remember where I got mine, it was Walmart, or some auto parts store but you can order online
Good luck

The only thing I have found that works is reguler paint polishing compound. Don't worry adout scratching the glass. If your not convinced try it on a small area.

Michaels--

I read your thread several weeks ago.

I had the same problem of acid rain stains on my old Holiday Rambler. I tried everything I ever heard about. Nothing worked--- and then I stumbled upon a product called Bio-clean. It worked but takes a lot of elbow grease. Go here to Bringiton (the new name of the product).

Hopes this help you out,

Good Luck-

I had the same problem and tried almost everything...spots were still there...finally found a product that is safe and worked!!! My windshield was beautiful ! Called Bring it On..google it....it's a wet paste you rub onto the glass, let it dry and wash it off...no paint damage...no glass scratching..BTW if you read the label on BonAmi it says to NOT use it on glass....that was enough warning for me

Hi Larry--

That's what I highlighted in my thread right above yours--- "Bring it on"-- I just ran it all together into one word, but the site will come up for that product.

It's great for deep and shallow glass stains.

Good luck,

Max

Sounds like it will work on the glass in showers too. Just wonder if it will hurt the seals in the holding tank?

Had the same problem with our 07 Journey we bought as a new left over stock so we know it sat out unattended. I used white (fine) rubbing compound and a high speed polisher and the etching was gone. Then Rain-X the heck out of it.

Boat hull cleaner, available an any marine store (West Marine). Put a little on a rag and put on the window and then wipe it off. It will take off anything! Although safe for fiberglass, it should be rinsed off so try not to get it on the rest of the coach.

From a now retired poilce officer (I was never an officer)

Things go better with Coca-Cola

Seriously, try Coca-Cola, followed closely by a good washing with more traditional methods.. Coke should lift the water spots but it can also lift your paint job so get it off quickly when done.

Another vote here for Bon Ami. I just recently washed my car and the sun got on the windshield before I could get is dry. I had some pretty serious water spots that remained after cleaning with a very good window cleaner. I got out the Bon Ami cake and polished the glass....no more spots.

Since I am a sucker for trying new products, I just ordered some Zaino fine glass polish that is claimed to remove etched spots in glass. Will be curious to see if it works.

I use a combination of Wink, RainX and windshield washer fluid. I use nothing but micro fiber cloths for cleaning. The key is to get the water off the glass ASAP and don't wash the rig in the heat of the day. More at Oemy's FREE Tech tips Oemy's Glass Gleaner
