What is the best way to get spots of the windows after a wash. It seems as if they show way more on the rear than the front due to the tint. The water here in Sacramento is hard and it seems to stick really bad if not wiped off right away. Anyone have suggestions? TIA

Water Spots

I have used a car cleaner wax to remove some water spots from my windows from vehicles throughout the years. But when the spots are really bad the only thing that I can think of is to go a a window repair shop. Sometime they have cleaners that may take care of your problem. Also do you wash your Mada in the sun because the sun drying the water on your windows causes alot of the problem.

Make your own spot remover!

I use a mix of vinegar and water in a spray bottle on my boat. Works great at getting the spots off!

About 25% vinegar and 75% water. Spray on, let sit a minute and wipe off (sometimes I need to repeat if it's really bad). Been using this for years with no damage to anything I've put it on - fiberglass, painted metal, and glass windshield.

2nd the vinegar. If that doesn't work, you may have to try using an orbital polisher with a good polish. Sometimes you cant get the spots out because they etch in the window.

A dry microfiber towel works for me. Another great reason to have them around. Wash, dry, buff, clean, remove water spots the list keeps going.
