You ever try using scratch-x or the ultimate compound? I used that stuff to remove water marks on my car. I got them out but it looks like I have acid etching in my clear. Been looking for a good detailer to get that stuff out

You can also try a 50/50 mix of vinegar and water. Spray it on and let sit for about 2 mins, then wipe away. Repeat as many times as necessary to get it out. Don't leave it sitting too long tho.
