Spot-X Hard Water Stain & Spot Remover

Bothered by water spots on your windshield, dangerous road film, or silicone buildup? Spot-X Hard Water Stain & Spot Remover cleans stubborn hard water stains from your vehicle glass. Whether the water stains are caused by acid rain, salt water, sprinklers or well water, Spot-X will work where other cleaners have failed. While Spot-X cannot be used on auto paint it will not harm the paint if it drips on it. Just don't rub it into the paint. Simply rinse off with water.

Tripple polish using a microfiber towel will knock them off. Easy

If you want to use something with more "chemicals" to it, PM me your address and I will send you a product in the mail.

+1 for Tripple.

There are a few other products I used, but none worked as easily as Tripple did

If you have a DA polisher you can use a compound to remove water spots as well

if nothing else works, get a steel wool, a Meguiare's polishing compound or Menzerna polishing compound, and start scrubbing.
Mine were so stubborn, I tried everything under the sun, but wouldn't budge. Finally some elbow grease, and the above aforementioned products took the stubborn water spots out. Make sure to use some paint tape around the edges.
Good luck.
