4 methods to remove water spots from your windows
There are actually a number of options to clean off water spots, and the right choice may depend on your particular needs or your preferences. Keep in mind that these ideas can also be used to clean off the glass on your sliding glass or front doors.
1. Make a spray out of vinegar and water
Grab some white distilled vinegar, get a spray bottle, and create a solution of half vinegar and have water. Make sure that you saturate the part of the window that has the most buildup. Let the solution sit for a few minutes after spraying it. When the glass dries, respray it. Then grab a small, rough towel and spray it with the solution. Scrub your glass and then dry it with a paper towel or soft towel. If there are still water spots then you can do the entire process again.
2. Use a lemon slice
Simply cut a lemon in half and rub one half on the glass. Use quite a bit of pressure. The acidity that’s in the lemon can get rid of hard water stains easily. Then mop up the lemon juice by wiping with a paper towel or soft towel. Finish the whole thing up by spraying glass cleaner and then wipe it down with a newspaper to remove any streaks.
3. Use a mixture of baking soda and water
If you want to clean with a paste, create one with baking soda and a little water. Then apply the paste to a cloth and rub the window to ensure that the abrasive baking soda granules get rid of the hard water spots. Then rinse it thoroughly with water. You can then move on any type of traditional glass cleaner plus a newspaper to get rid of all the streaks and residue.
4. Use store-bought products
If you’d rather simply buy a product then you can find any number of commercial cleaners made for the specific purpose of getting rid of or preventing water spots.
