Cleaning glass

What is used to remove water spots from mirror glass and side windows? I've tried the vinegar and newspaper but didn't work real well. I baked the water spots onto my mirrors before installing the mirror heat switch that Ford deemed unneccesary. Anyone know any foolproof methods?

when all else fails I use glass polish. My water leaves bad water spots too and they are a pain to get off glass and wheels, I usually try to keep a thin coat of carnuba on my mirrors it helps repell it and make them dry cleaner.

Water spots are no fun...especcially when they have become heat baked to your paint or windows... i believe i have tried just about everything to get rid of'em...but nothing seems to work other than replacing the window or wetsanding the paint. the best cure for this would be prevention.

OK, I seem to have polished my glass back to it's original luster. What about the paint. This truck has some major water spots due to lift being too big for my garage. I've since got my RV shed built for protection. This truck is '03 Arizona Beige. What can I do to remove these? The best way? Right way? Easiest way?

you wire it up to one of your upfitter switches... you can get the wire on the back side of the fuse box is the easiest... ill let you know when I find which one it is again.
