I have some water spots on pretty much all of my glass (they are faint but noticable). Has anyone had any luck getting rid of them? I have tried Vinegar. I have even tried toothpaste ....no luck

Yes, you can remove much of it with oooo super fine steel wool and some polishing compound.

Ironically, I just had to do this earlier today. My wife came back from Nevada where she parked our truck next to a sprinkler. NOTHING would remove the spots from the glass. I had to use Meguirs Fine Cut cleaner to buff them out.

I have been told that Corningware polish works really good. Now try finding the polish, I can't.

I got something called "Glass Scrub" a couple years ago at Advance Auto. It's in a squeeze bottle like car wax and it removes pretty much anything, sap, paint overspray, adhesives...it even takes the "yellowing" off old plastic headlight lenses.

Have had the same tube since, so don't know if it's still available.

The t-top in my Fiero had bad waterspots when I bought it. Tried several things, many already mentioned here without success. The only thing I found that worked was Zaino glass polish.

Cut a potato in half and rub it against the glass. Works wonders on glassware in the kitchen also that have mineral stains from the dishwasher. use a bit of vinegar for the large spots or a bit of a lubricant if you find the potato sticking to the glass alot.

I used some Diamonite, a two step process, a few years ago. Part 1 was a scub, part 2 was a glass cleaner. I don't remember where I bought it.

I tried toothpaste and I tried vinegar ...I have avoided powdered cleanser (or SOS pads) because it could scratch the glass

Bon Ami is not supposed to scratch glass. I used it on my fieros and table tops.
