Anyone know of a product to take watermarks off the glass. I saw a product on FB but don't trust those adds.

Basically it is the spots on the glass from where the water dried before I could get it wiped off. Seems a clay bar will not take it off.

Vinegar or another mild acid. Don't get it on anything else, for example put a paper towel over the area and wet it, wear eye protection and full body armor, etc. wink

Barkeeper's friend will take it off and won't scratch the glass.

No affiliation, but I've used this for years. My recommendation is to put something on the glass afterwards to repel the water and you won't have to redo the job.

Also, depending on the severity of the spots, you might want to use a buffer if they are really bad. Minor spotting is easy enough to do by hand.

I forgot about that, I've used that as well. The Duragloss is a little more aggressive than the Stoner's, but they're both good. If you have heavier spots I would still recommend the Duragloss, or just work a little longer at it with the Stoner's.

Thanks, the water spots are really noticeable on the back glass on my 2002 Silverado. Trying to get it nice and clean taking it one step at a time so when the time comes to sell it will look good.

If you have any type of automotive polish it will take it right off.

If this is a recurring problem then after you get everything nice and clean I would consider applying a glass sealant.

No, it usually won't. You need something far more aggressive. You can try it first though if you have something like that on hand. In many cases it calls for specialized products to do the job.

Vinegar and a new clean razor blade or steel wool, neither will scratch your glass.

A cleaner for polymers? Not saying it won't work on glass, but I'm a little skeptical. It's also pretty expensive from the looks of it.
