    so i did some googling and ive heard a few different methods

    - use CLR with some 0000 steel wool
    - use vinegar with some 0000 steel wool
    - use mothers chrome polish

    If the spots are from hard water and are on the surface, like a deposit, then try the vinegar first. Usually a mild acid will break the bond between the deposits and the glass surface.

    Have never tried CLR. Chrome polish might work but I prefer a dedicated glass polish with #0000 steel wool.

    went to target and picked up some CLR and some vinegar, both seem to do the trick with a little working in with the #0000. i just did a few test spots on the windsheild and some of the tinted rear windows (factory tint so its safe). i'll do the rest when i give the car a good wash later over the weekend.

    i think i might just stick with the CLR as it came in a spray bottle and easy to apply.

    I use the stuff called Bar Keepers friend. Get the windshield wet, sprinkle that on and rub it in. Then rinse off the windshield and make sure you get it off the car. Or just wash your car afterwards.
