removing water spots

I have some stubburn water spots on my rear window, and I have tried everything I can think of to remove it, and no luck. Anyone have any house hold products, and anything I could use to remove them??? Thanks

Try a 50-50 solution of vinegar and water, and apply it using VERY fine (0000) steel wool. If you take your time and use the steel wool carefully, it shouldn't scratch the glass.

Hey Dude!

I used straight Lime-Away.

Get your household rubber gloves out, cause this stuff may irritate your skin. Might be wise to protect your eyes, as well.

Anyway, I poured some (straight) on a wash cloth, and worked the cloth around in circles/swirls, adding more Lime-Away when I felt I needed to.

I basically used a cloth to apply it, for control purposes, you don't want to get it on your paint.

Took a while, but it removed all my Florida hard water stains.

Hope it works as well for you.

You'll know within a few minutes if its going to work or not, if it don't, you still have a jugs remaining product for bathroom usage.

I have the same problem with my rear window. I also have tint on it, would Lime-away damage the tint??

Say What!

Tint on the window? Is the tint on the outside (Exterior), of the glass, or the inside? How do you get water stains on the inside?

Anyway, I have never tried using Lime-Away on window tint, be it film or static cling type tint.

"I" used it on the "exterior glass" surfaces of my windows. I doubt that I would trust it on any type window tint. Lime-Away is caustic, and requires gloves, and common sence when using it.

I just used it on a rag, not soaked or dripping with the product, just enought to, scrub around with a bit of elbow grease. **Follow the directions on the jug!

I wore gloves, and still got a few very small drops on the exposed skin of one arm, which caused a burning sensation.

Seems that maybe a long sleeve rain jacket, may have been in order.

Again, we aren't talking about slinging Lime-Away all over the place, just a little dab will do ya, For Pete's sake folks, be safe!

Also, that Razor Blade suggestion is a good one too!

But folks, lets use our noggin's, and not ever act unsafe with any chemicle type products, and make shift tools, that may have the potential to harm us.

If, "after reading" the products recommended usage and safety lables, and you still have a concern about your safety, your better off, just looking for another solution.
~BE SAFE~ Dog gone it!
