How to remove streaks on glass?

Hey so i been trying a couple products and none have been able to fully take all the water spots off the glass and once first rain comes there are always streaks.

Was wondering does anyone have a really solid product they ue on glass to keep water spots off?

Thanks

What are you using currently?

And are you saying you can't remove spots that are there, or you can't prevent spots from forming?

I used RainX and I also used this thing called invisible glass from stoner. So when i use these products I noticed the deep small rainspots don't come off. And they when it rains it loads up with water spots instantly. So im looking for a product that can remove and keep off.

First, I'd recommend getting rid of all that stuff. Clay bar the windows and wipe them off with isopropyl alcohol to get a fresh start. Then find yourself a good glass sealant to protect from future waterspots. I love the one from GTechniq.

claybar works great, i think any other type of product like swirl remover would leave another layer on top of what is on there

All clay bars are made by the same company so I'd usually go with what's cheaper. Mother's has a nice little package with clay bar and clay lube.

If you can swing it, most advise for the speedy surface prep towel. It's basically a towel that serves the same function as clay but it's faster because the towel is so much bigger and it's easier.

I'd be careful using a claybar on the inside glass...

Shayne, when is the next little get together ? I have some stuff I can let you try if I'm able to make it there. I thought Ewa Beach had hard water, you must have worse there. I hardly ever get water spots.

I think CD meant get rid of the rainx. The invisible glass is a great product!
