I had really bad water spots on my old motor home, and didn't have a clue of anything that would work to remove them until my nephew went to work for the summer at a local car wash. He told me that the spots would be gone if I bought a product called "Nothin Better" and used it on the windows. 'Viola", spots gone.

Give it a try... I am sure you will be satisfied.

I agree with the vinegar posts! I had some spots on my truck windshield that just wouldn't come off, and Rain-X didn't help. I used straight vinegar in a spray bottle and the windshield is crystal clear! The great thing is how inexpensive common vinegar is! Amazing what we can do with ordinary things in our kitchen pantry!

I tried everything to remove the white spots and nothing worked. I posted a request for suggestions and in the final analysis the solution was vinegar.

It really did work and didn't cause any problems on the finish.

Good luck and let us know how you make out.

Have you tried scrapping the spots off with a razor blade?

If you have the reflective coating on the windows; be careful the coating is on the outside of the glass and steel wool may scratch the coating.

I removed window tinting on my car and used turpentine to remove the adhesive and its cleaned the window spotless and its not abrasive or quick to evaporate like lacquer thinner.

Try some WD-40. Removes lots of stuff.

Reflective coating on the outside of windows? That's a new one on me. It holds up to WS wiper use OK?

I've used razor blades and steel wool as well. Actually, I try to keep some bronze wool around for that. Available at bigger boating supply houses. The steel wool residue can build up and turn to a big wad of rust - creating more issues. Bronze wool cleans the same - but there's no possibility of rust.
