    CLR then when the spots are gone use a good car wax on it and the water will roll off

      @Diane Navarro Tippetts Windows really? Cool, kitchen sink window is always getting splashed from exuberant water users, shall we say, and I cant seem to keep it clean ! I will try ..a good CAR wax did you say?? (Like the spray kind?) and apply it after I have throughly cleaned the window..

    Okay, I have a recipe, 1/2 C hydogen peroxide, 1/2 C rubbing alcohol. 1T dishwasher rinse, and finally 1 T Dawn. Add water slowly to top of spray bottle (32 ounce). Don't shake. just tip over a couple times to mix. I put it a spray bottle (and put the spray away in the cupboard) and spray. No need to wipe off. It just disappears as you use your sink. Should work. Works on soap residue on shower doors and tile, and even on bathroom mirror! I'm a believer! Been spraying on after showers. No rings or scum evident. Or go to the dollar store and buy shower cleaning spray for a buck. That how I started, but mixing your own really is better!

    Bar Keepers Friend and a Teflon Scrubbie, then rinse and dry.

    Zep for hard water stains from homedepot, soak for a few minutes then use toothbrush to scrub off.

    Shampoo without conditioner. I wrote a post about it last week:

    @Roman I find using scrubbing bubbles is an effortless way to clean and maintain glass that is regularly exposed to water. Just spray, leave for a few minutes then use a nylon scrubbie (lightly rub) and rinse - voila looks like new. Let us know what works for you.

    I wouldn't wax a sink because the wax can cloud depending upon what's poured in the sink. I would, however, apply Rain-x just like I would to a shower door. It's found in automotive stores and it keeps water from remaining on the glass. You have the one most serious reason I wouldn't go glass. That and toothpaste smears. But it is lovely ... at times!

    will these suggestions from everyone work on acrylic showers, tubs, sinks, etc? such as the Rain-x for example. I have tried nearly all of these suggestions including barkeepers friend (and a razor blade) and still have spots on my windows from the irrigation system when the water would hit them.

      Take a spray bottle, fill half with white vinegar, half with rubbing alcohol, use microfiber cloth, it sparkles, no streaks and disinfects

    no, not spray, use the paste, rub on buff off, its easy, put on thin coat, when it dries to a haze wipe it off. :)

    Cathy W from Portland is dead on!! My Mom has told me about using peroxide for cleaning. She cleans her bathroom with it all the time. I'm going to mix up a bottle and try it in my bathroom and kitchen! Thank you Cathy!

    Beverly, I hope you are as happy with it as I am! Only one problem: Hubby has complained that the shower floor is slippery. Problem solved: I spray on glass doors AFTER he showers, and then NOT after my shower. Keeping a Small sponge in the shower helps swish the shower water, via foot. around and down the drain. Call it my "Sponge Dance"!

    To cut the original hard water build up (before trying all these maintenance ideas) I use toilet bowl cleaner. Our water is liquid rocks and once we get a water mark it's just about permanent... until I spray it down with toilet cleaner. I've cleaned vases, drinking glasses, dishes, all our sinks, faucets, shower, and tubs with no issues. Nothing has lost its finish. I'd see if I could test it on a small hidden area to be safe, before diving in. Oh, I always wear gloves, use a sponge or paper towel to spread the cleaner, and rinse really well when done.

    If have found car wax works. You might need to repeat depending on how bad the spots are.
