We all know that water spots are probably the most persistent cleaning issues for people who like their glass pristine, whether it is the set of crystal drinking glasses in the cupboard or the windshield of your car. For car owners, water spots can represent a nagging annoyance when they drive their cars: it might be small, yes, but it can be unsightly. Furthermore, if you really live in a place where the water is very “hard”, you may find spots big enough to obscure some parts of your vision when driving your car, due to the higher levels of mineral deposits in the water you use to clean your auto glass. Water spots form from the minerals found in water when they dry, similar to “the crust” that gets left behind when a puddle or drop of strongly sweetened juice dries up. Fortunately, cleaning up such spots is easy.
First, you need a spray bottle filled with a cleaning solution of mixed water and white vinegar. The usual or average ratio for the water and vinegar mixture is 1:2, respectively, but you may strengthen the vinegar portion as you see fit, depending on how bad the water spots are. White vinegar and water mixtures are actually commonly used to clean auto glass, so you need not worry about it being bad for your windows. Just spray it on your windows and leave it for a few minutes. Ideally, you should leave it on for approximately 5 minutes, although you may let it sit just a little longer than that if the spots are really grave. You may even use an all-vinegar mixture if you want, just to raise the cleaning power of the solution.
Once the solution has had sufficient time on the surfaces of your windows, you can get a wet rag and clean it all off. After you have finished wiping away the water and vinegar from the windows and windshield, be sure to dry the glass with care using another rag or some paper towels. This is in fact the crucial step, since it prevents more hard water spots from forming on your auto glass. Most hard water stains and spots on glass could be prevented so easily. All you need to do is remember to always dry your glass after washing it or getting it wet.
You have a few more alternatives when mixing a solution for cleaning away hard water spots on your car’s windshield and windows. For instance, instead of doing a white vinegar and water solution, use lemon juice instead and apply the exact same method described above for the vinegar and water mixture. Lemon juice is already established as a strong cleaning agent for clothes and it can actually serve much the same purpose for your auto glass.
