Our windshield has a bad case of water spots. Windex just does not seem to clean them off.

What is a good product to keep your windows clean???

Outbum,
My old motor home, an '86 H.R., had a bad case of acid rain glass etching. I tried ever remedy people told me about-- No luck. Then I was in a auto glass store near my home and they do shower doors and enclosures also. They had a product called Bio- Clean, hard water stain remover paste. I bought it and "walla", with much elbow grease, one window at a time, I did the whole coach. It did a remarkable job. I say one window at a time because it wore me out to do more than one or two windows a day.

I ordered more of it and as I remember (its been 8 or 9 years ago), the fellow that made it in california, said he ground up oyster shells into a powder and made a paste out of it. I still have a container of it but it has no email address on it. The tel number is 800-867-2643. I called that number tonight and a recording said they still make a product for glass restoration- leave your number. It is fantastic-- Good luck

If you haven't already tried it, give vinegar a shot. If that won't do it get BonAmi, should do the trick and won't scratch the windows.

I've used this product on my classic Mustang windshield. It works wonders on stains that have been there a while.

Once you do get the windows clean, use rainx to keep the windshield from spotting. Then put the windshield washer fluid in the reservoir to continue keeping it clean. It works like a charm for us.

How is it one careless match can start a forest fire but it takes a whole box to start a campfire?

Its the same as water spot in your shower so what do you clean that with.

Outbumn,

Ron,
Marti called me back. They have re- formulated the bio-Clean product and it now is called "bring it on". Their web site is:

It'll do the job

Hi Max, We are going to give it a try also. In the past the only thing we found was a two part acid system that is no longer available(it also took some serious elbow grease-but anything else just does not work). thanks, Dave

We have extremely hard water and I have found that simple household vinegar and a nylon scrubber works great. Simple and cheap is usually best.

We found that WHINK works well with no elbow grease.

Thank you Max(I think-20 more windows to go on three cars). Took your recommendations and tried the "Bring it On". Took about 1/2 hour for the first window with some serious scrubbing, but as you know nothing else works!! We have tried over 50 recommendations and a bunch of our own but other than steel wool(which really doesn't do much) nothing works-all they do is COVER UP/and does not remove the water spots and looks good until you get in the shade, etc.

The Bio-Clean product(Bring it On) actually works!

Presently working on a new to us '98 Cherokee where I'm sure the previous owner(s) had done nothing but cover up the water stains with windex, vinegar, armorall, wax, etc.
