I found an ebay store that sells it also.

http://cgi.ebay.com/CRL-SPARKLE-CLEANER-STAIN-REMOVER-P...ZphotoQQcmdZViewItem

It is Sparkle Glass Cleaner, from C.R. Lawrence.

Works well. I have half the coach done now, and have used about 1/3 of the bottle. A little goes along way.

Cruzer, I don't doubt you, I think mothers works well, unfortuneatly, I don't think the past owners of this coach ever washed the windows, and there is major spotting on them. To the point where the surface of the glass is quite rough.

Thanks for you ideas!

John

here is the link to the MFG.

I did not realize WD-40 is made by them also.

They also list another "Spot Remover" seems to be more of a liquid variant.

As I see it there are 2 kinds of water spots.
1) High levels of calcium or other minerals in the water. This combined with not wiping the surface dry and washing in the sun or heat of the day.
2) Acid rain combined with a coach setting uncovered.

I have had both problems. The first is easy to fix... Use soft water, use Calgon water softener in the wash bucket or add Jet dry to the water. I plan to try Jet Dry in my Mr Clean sprayer.

I had the acid rain problem because I lived near a lime plant. They would clean the stacks at night and leave a white residue of fly ash and lime on everything for miles. Turned them into the state but they could never catch them doing it. But, they also couldn't explain the white residue either.

Here is my glass cleaning formula. Regular washer fluid, some RainX, some Wink (rust & stain remover)and micro fiber cloths. It works for me. If you have calcium deposits on the glass you can use a razor scraper along with the glass cleaner. You should only have to do this once.

Dale thanks for the info.

I certianly hope I don't have to do that again, even with the new cleaner ideas. I got all "House windows" and just have to do the windshield, which doesn't seem to be quite as bad. The Curb side windows were far worse.

I am hoping the RainX and regular cleaning keeps them away.

I must say, even though I am tooting my own horn, the coach has much more "curb appeal" with clean windows!

One last thing.... After you get the windows clean you can polish them with a wadded up newspaper.

Dale, if the local yokles don't want to address the polluters, try the EPA Clean Air Division. Sounds to me like you have a major violation in progress with dire health implications !
