Hi guys
I took too long to dry my car after a wash this weekend and now I have what looks like hard water spots on the windshield. I polished and waxed the paint so they are only on the glass. I've tried cleaning the glass 3 times with stoners inv glass but they are still there. Will claying work better? Or maybe some rubbing alcohol first?

See if its as bad as mine. if it is, glass polisher, i recently tried a few more items that was recommended, nothing clean as good as the ceriglass that was recommended. I tried a-maz and this other one autogeeks sell, was hoping for a easier solution.

You can do a few things for WP on glass, the polish that you used on the paint will work just as well on the glass. Clay in some cases will take them off, not always depending on how long they've been on there and how aggressive the clay is.

Lastly and what I use is 0000 steel wool, it takes them off with no issue and IS SAFE on the glass.

Use Chemical Guys "waterspotremover". It is an acid base. http://www.detailedimage.com/Chemical-Guys-M31/Water-Spot-Remover-P194/16-oz-S1/

Easiest and safest way is to use 0000 steel wool and a compound or polish.

Yes, another vote here for Chemical Guys Water Spot Remover (http://www.detailedimage.com/wax.php?id=12368&url=detailedimage.com/Chemical-Guys-M31/Water-Spot-Remover-P194/16-oz-S1/). It's very strong, so make sure to wear gloves and rinse the area after cleaning. I've used it on clear-coat to remove massive water spots from prolonged exposure to lawn sprinklers, and it cleans the spots right off.
