Best way to remove hard water spots from windshield?

Hey all,

My honey got hit by the sprinklers during the night; now I have hard water spots that I can't seem to get off. How do you remove them? I've heard vinegar may work, or fine steel wool. Can't seem to find any good info on the web.

I use SPOT-X Hard Water Stain Remover to get rid of those nasty water marks on my windshield. It works really well IMO.

1/2 distilled vinegar 1/2 distilled water can be used to remove water spots.. depends on how bad they are though.. spray the mixture on and wipe with cloth.. can be used on paint as well.

Otherwise, as mentioned use wool-cloth or glass polish on the window.
