    Just washing won't take it off?

    If not, try a light polish for the body, I'd use Meguiar's #7 or S100 Paint Cleaner. That should remove it no problem, if not, you're going to have to move up to something with a little more cutting power.

    For the windows, try some Eagle One 20/20 Glass Cleaner (which you should be using anyway). If that doesn't work, claybar the window. It sounds funny, but it works.

    Claying the paint also works pretty good, but I detailed a Chevy S10 Blazer today that needed Meguiars Dual Action Cleaner Polish to remove the hard water spots, followed by Swirl Free Polish. Check the product list for specific paint cleaners and swirl removers that have more cutting power than #7 or S100 SEPC.

    Lime Away will work on the windows, but you have to keep it off the paint. Vinegar also works in most cases.
