The longer water spots sit on windows the more difficult they become to remove. This is why it's important to remove them from windows as soon they are noticed.
Removing them sooner with glass stain remover rather than later makes it more likely that they'll come off easier with far less effort and chemicals than they would if left alone for any amount of time.
It's important to check windows regularly to ensure that there are no water spots that need tending to.
Following are some tips for removing water spots from windows:
Use of White Vinegar
The simplest and most effective home remedy for water spots is white vinegar. Individuals can apply a small amount of white vinegar to a soft cloth, wipe a window that has water spots, and watch those spots disappear relatively quickly.
This method is a favourite among homeowners not only because it's simple and effective but because most homeowners have vinegar somewhere in their home.
Another option for removing water spots is to utilize a small amount of rubbing alcohol first and then use the WD-40 solution shortly after. The alcohol breaks up the stains and loosens them while the WD-40 removes them as it cleans the glass. Rubbing alcohol and the WD-40 can also be applied to a paper towel which then can be gently rubbed across a window with water spots.
The aforementioned options will remove water spots from windows, homeowners should first consult with a professional window cleaner in order to determine whether or not their windows are capable of handling these or any combination of said chemicals.
Not all windows are made the same and some chemicals can damage not only glass but the preservatives put there during a previous professional window cleaning.
