How do you remove water spots from a car windshield?

It’s been raining here so much lately, and my car has ended up with some annoying water spots on my windshield that make it hard to see. How can I clean these water spots from my car’s windshield?

As annoying as those water spots can be, removing them is super easy. You just need to gather a few materials you probably already have in your house to clean those water spots:
  • Vinegar
  • Water
  • Bowl
  • Towel
  • Paper towel
Once you have the materials, follow these steps:
  • In either a spray bottle or bowl (whatever is easiest for you), mix vinegar and water equally.
  • Once you have them mixed well, soak a towel in the mixture.
  • When the towel is adequately soaked (it should be dripping), rub it on the water spots in a circular motion.
  • Let the mixture sit for about five minutes.
  • Using the paper towels, wipe the spots in a circular motion to dry your windshield.
  • If this doesn’t work, repeat the steps until the spots are fully gone.
