Water spots on glass shower doors; microwave lighted keypad

We have an '06 Pace Arrow 37C. Here's a couple of random questions:

What product do you use to prevent hard water spotting on interior glass shower walls? Have already used baking soda, vinegar, & newspaper to clean them. Can a RAINEX product be used to prevent spotting or is this just for exterior auto glass?

We have a GE PROFILE SPACEMAKER MICRO/ CONVECTION oven. MDL JVM1490SH 02. The pads on the black keypad are difficult to see as they are not lighted. Is there an adjustment I've missed in the manual to get them lighted or is this not a feature of this unit?

To stop hard water marks, we wipe the complete shower down after using with a good quality "Super Cloth".
No idea about the micro.

We have a squeegee that hangs in our shower, takes a quick minute to squeegee the glass down after a shower.......no spots. Most people I know use this method.
Wally World sells small squeegee , our came with a small suction type hook to hang it with.
I read a post a while ago that someone used Rain ex, said it lasted for a few weeks ?

Squeegee is best prevention. To clean water spots, I use CLR Lime scale remover. Rubber gloves, eye protection, and a sponge. Rub it on, let it sit for a few minutes and scrub it off, rinse well. Works in the MH and at home. I have a fancy shower head in our new to us MH, has lots of little nozzles in it for the water spray, but most of the nozzles were clogged. Soaked the shower head overnight in CLR-Like new in the morning.

In my opinion, the best solution is a water softener like https://www.flowpur.com/html/mark_8000.html

If you don't, the water spots are what you can see but what you can't see are the faucets, pump, water lines, etc gumming up with hard water deposits. Personally, I started to take notice when the icemaker began having troubles. Works great now.

PS: No affiliation with FloPure other than the Mark8000 is the one I bought from them and am a satisfied customer.

Great advice from all. We do have a squeegee, just not remembering to use it 100 percent of time. CLR sounds a bit easier than baking soda paste with vinegar and not as messy either. Just wondered if a RAINEX type product would last longer, etc.

We use a squeeze and a CLR spray bottle designed for kitchen and bath. Spray it on, spread it on all surfaces, rinse. Shower looks new.

You can use the full strength CLR, but the spray works just as well.

Great.thank you. Will give it a try. Sounds simple enough. Need to wear rubber gloves and eye protection or just ventilate the bathroom?
