How do I clean water spots from my windows?

Chriss GrijakDonnaJanice


The irrigation will sometimes splas the windows. I’ve tried window cleaners, vinegar as well as ammonia to no avail!

    Hi Diane, Here's a couple video's that have unique ways to remove hard water stains from your windows:

    I don't know how many windows are affected by your irrigation system, but If you have any Rain X for your car windshield, you might want to try using it on one window and see if it helps long term!

    Good luck!

    All water spots are caused by water drying too slow. Try a wipe down using a Boiling Hot Rag. Per necessity after that, do it with windex.

    Use old newspapers (B & W, NOT colored pages) and Windex. Do not clean in direct sunlight.

    Hi Diane, a professional window cleaner told me to try using TSP. It will work when nothing else will. Your windows may have been etched with the water through the years. Mine has and there's nothing left to do but replace the windows which I will not do as the irrigation problem still exists when watering when it's windy outside.

    You might try a Mr Clean has a tiny, different type if abrasion that shouldn’t harm the glass.

    I’ve found that a good quality microfiber cloth such as Norwex solves the problem. Good luck!
