Water spots on windows

So I've tried the vinegar remedy, glass cleaner and still th spots are there! Anyone have any other possible solutions? It really sucks when
Your car is spotless but have water spots all over glass

A mild clay bar treatment got rid of the water spots on the glass of my former '12 V6.

0000 steel wool dry rub the entire windshield until smooth. Take rain-x and apply with a terry cloth let dry for ten or so minutes or until it hazes over. Apply another coat of rain-x let haze over. Take another terry cloth towel wet it the wring it out. Wipe the windshield with the towel until clear. I have done this on all my cars and trucks and have never had a problem. Leaves them slick and rain/snow etc just slides right off.

Oh yea it worked. You can still see a few spots but 100x better than what it looked like before. Thanks for the tips!

No problems I just want to make sure I give out good advice. Really I have done this for a few years now on all my cars and trucks.

If most of the problem is bug guts I use a paste made of baking soda and scrub with an old sock - can also use on pa[nt like front edge of hood and on grill and bumpers . best of all any grocery store stocks the stuf1

I've read that buffing works. It's about the same as buffing clearcoat, but I'm sure the compound would be different. Should help remove wiper blade scrapes, too.
