How do you remove water spots from car windows?

I’ve been cleaning my windows at the gas station every time I go, but I can’t seem to get rid of water spots. How should I remove them?

Water spots can be frustrating, especially when you just cleaned your windows. To remove them, try mixing a solution of half white vinegar and half water. Dip a cloth in it and rub away at those spots.
The water spots on your window are usually caused by minerals, so it might take a little bit of time and elbow grease, but the vinegar should loosen them up.
Other options include:
  • Lemon juice (mix with water or make into a paste with baking soda. Let sit for 30 minutes)
  • Pure white vinegar (for stubborn spots)
  • 1/5 rubbing alcohol (isopropyl) to 4/5 water
When cleaning the spots, always wear gloves and work in a well-ventilated space.
Another way to take care of your car is to invest in a roadside assistance plan. Jerry has partnered with Urgently to offer a roadside assistance membership including winching, towing, fuel delivery, and more.
