Water spots cleaning products???

Does anyone know of a good product to use to remove hard water stains off of auto glass... I've tried windex, other window cleaning foam sprays, vinegar, etc. and nothing seems to work. The water spots seem to be kegged on... any ideas???

Thanks guys

I'm not a detailer, i don't know specific product for specific uses

But to prevent those problems, don't wash the car in direct sunlight or whenever its hot outside. Using rainX on the windows, was amazing. Not a single drop of water would stick to the windows.

I never wash the car in the sun, and whenever i wash it i immediately dry it... I bought the car like this, and whatever i've tried I cannot get these waterspots to come out...

Thanks for the advice though...

be carefull with RainX! once you put it on its like a thin film layer on your windshield. A friend of mine was using it and over time turned yellow, literaly ruined his windshield. RainX was initaly made for motorcycle helmets, to help it the biker gets caugh in rain, and even repel bugs from sticking.
