I have used good old fashioned rubbing compound on the really tough stuff. Only on glass, though....never tried it on Plexi.....there are better cleaners for Plexi, I would think.....

My detailing guy uses Whink Rust Remover on the salon windows. Took care of very stubborn water spots on the glass with little effort.

Buff it out with toothpaste. Serious. It works in most cases.

good video on Shurhold, if the bronze wool doesn't work, you would need new glass

Bronze wool and a buffer will make it look brand new. No cleaner I have found will remove those hard water spots

I have used this with water and a soft cloth before on my glass windshield with nice results. Won't scratch. Make sure it's a clean rag and buff it.

I'm about to wetsand mine with 3000-7000 grit sandpaper. If that still leaves scratches I'll move to micron ratings.

before you sand- try whink rust remover. use a lot a of water as it damage paint.
The tinted windows on the sporty looked horrible. I used whink, with a sponge and some elbow grease. the windows looked new when we were done,
if it doesn't work the worst thing is your out 5 bucks and some time.

Another vote for Whink. Try it before abrasives! It works. The stains are hard water marks.
