hawaiian island shine water spot remover is the best product I've used. Removed waterspots on vehicle not touched for more than a decade.

Sounds like different things work for different people. I guess the environmental elements that caused the spots are different as well. People on the coast dealing with salt water, people on city water systems dealing with hard water issues, and those out in the sticks dealing with high iron content or other natural elements.

I used car wash soap directly on the glass (do not dilute) & lightly rubbed with a clean rag. Afterwards, clean the glass with Windex or choice window cleaner. It was very effective in removing all the water spots.

Spot-X works real good. Get it at the Home Depot for cheap.

hawaiian island shine water spot remover for glass worked wonders. I tried a bunch of different products and I found this worked by far the best!

Finally!



Exactly what happens.



For all the people stating to use steel wool here is a thread just for you. I made it so people giving horrible advise would stop ruining others windshields. http://www.tacomaworld.com/forum/det...ml#post2034997


All advise on here even though its from a TW member should always be researched before actually taking their word.
Tell me how I gave a bad response! The guy wanted spots off his windows. I had spots, found a product that worked and posted it!

I just got a new (used) truck and I couldn't tell I had them until we started getting rain... the past few days it has been raining like crazy and I was having a hard time seeing... I cleaned with everything and nothing worked....

I read on another forum to try Motherís Mag and Aluminum polish... I picked some up today and it worked! I just put it on and then wiped it off. No more film/water spots.
