    I have heard about the vinegar trick. saturate a newspaper with vinegar(it holds it longer) and let it sit on the window. It will soften the the mineral deposit to be removed.

    Hello, Freddie. While prevention is always the best cure, the question has already been answered by fellow forum members but I will echo their sentiments just based upon my own personal experience. Use Rain-ex to prevent, a water/vinegar mixture to remove most all spots and for seriously embedded spots, use CLR.

    Please note: This is ONLY for windows. Do not try the CLR on any other surface.

    Hmmm. Why not dry the windows then use an inexpensive glass cleaner, one neighbour uses his shop vac as a blower to dry windows and around the grill. He swears by it. Did I answer the question or did I miss the whole point? Someone said prevention! And yes RainX on a clean windshield or side glass, that stuff is the best.
