    So i bought my truck few weeks ago and the rear window is dirty as in it has spots that wont go away. They are neither inside nor outside. Ive tried, a glass cleaner, windex, mr clean sponge the scotch brite sponge/buffer rough thing and it still wont go away. I need to know what i can do to remove the stains. Its very annoying. Alos, the entire back glass is like this not just a spot or a side. i will try to snap a pic and upload.

    Noooooooo.... the only reason it looks like it takes anything out is because it scratches the surface badly around a scratch making it look like it's better. In actuality it just puts millions of small surface scratches on the glass.

    Will this stuff work on shower glass that has spots? I've tried everything I could think of on my shower glass with zero improvement.

    So 20 years working with glass pays off :D Glad tio hear it worked. Now seal the glass with some rain-x or similar so it doesn't happen again.


    Yep. Works wonders. When your done seal it. First I would try dish soap - that stuffs good at removing spots.

    For the past 10 years or so I have been squeegeeing my shower glass before I get out. Helps save the glass and aluminum. http://www.crlaurence.com/crlapps/s...41391&History=39326:26928:28255&ModelID=41391
