claybar, if not, rotary buffer and some cutting compound if the water spots are etched on to the glass

Well water is extremely bad for a cars paint, or house paint, or the sidewalk, or the driveway, or the brick of your house, etc. See where I'm going.

If you buff it be very careful and use the softest pad you can buy. It will ruin the pad but not your window. And dont let it heat up to much it will put swirls actually in the glass. The best stuff out there is called bio-clean you can purchase it through any glass company. It had compounds in it that is safe for glass.

Maybe I misunderstand the meaning of your advice. Are you suggesting he dry buffs his windows with a finishing pad? If so, yes it will destroy the pad and no it wont remove the spots. Never tested this, for obvious reasons, but I am sure it will do more harm than good.


There are some dedicated systems out there for removing water spots, diamondite being one off the top of my head. If you own a machine polisher they can be removed that way as well with a medium to heavy cut polish or compound depending on their severity. However I would warn against anything extremely aggressive in the abrasion department as you can scratch/swirl glass.

hence the, "dont let it heat up to much b/c it will swirl the window." and buff the window along with the bio clean compound.
