Water marks

Postby SEB15 » Thu Oct 20, 2011 6:12 pm

well you know how after it rains on a hot day and your glass has dirt droplets after the rain droplets have dried up.... well from certain angles or if the light is right all you see is this..... even if the car has been scrubbed, i've used windex, soaps, vinegar, alcohol wipes and the marks still don't go away.....:(


anyone got any ideas how to get rid of these annoying ugly marks...????

newspaper and windex. always works.

and when cleaning windows, you always should go in a different direction inside and out, eg, outside window wipe up and down, inside window side to side. coz if you leave and smears you know if its inside or outside
