I dont see why watermarks cannot be removed from glass..

I dont think water etches to the glass like paint do, i have removed water marks with a paint polish before. Megs M105 via DA.
Its good to live in a place where mainstream products are worth the dough.

It's quite unsightly.

Thanks :)


Get glass polish for cars from supermart or autobacs. Don't try other remedy like Mama-Lemon, Jiff, etc...

You don't want to solve a problem and introduce another ie. squeaky/juddery wiper sweeps...


my humble 2 cents
i don't think jiff is appropriate as it has particles which might scratch.

try claying and then follow by rain X. read the instruction clearly. i was using the product for a while and trying to shine my windscreen until i burst my underwear. then one fine day i couldn't take it anymore and sit down one corner and swear at the bottle. then i saw that fine line i missed. . . #$%^&*

note: the rain X applied aftermath causes trembling wiper.

i could live with it. shiny, clean windscreen is what i desire.

the squeaky or trembling wiper problem. i like to imagine. when your smooth surface, be it tiles or glass. when these smooth surface is clean it gives a 'clean rubbing' sound. but when you rub rubber over such surface. without a medium like water for example. that rubber however grips better.
people ask, why do i keep a safe following distance? so that others may do their lane changing ABRUPTLY. . .

Don't need to apply anything, just need to wet the glass first. Can't recall how much, $10+ range I think.

rain x will do the job.
ive have tested it on my car.

BUT, u need to have few coating, example....
spray, wipe with 1st cloth, just wipe to clear the water droplet cause by spraying.
spray again, wipe with 1st cloth again. but this time add a bit of pressure to wipe(circular motion)

by now, your windscreen will not be clear.

use 2nd cloth, clean the windscreen.

by now, windscreen it clear. but not yet finish.

spray/splash water on it.

then apply rain x again.
one time spray of like 3 to 4 squeeze
clean using 3 cloth.

its a hassle but it work great on my car.
(not sure but the product can be diff but in this cae i use rain x)

I think can apply on all the other 5 windows then the front window not so bad coz wiper blade always swipe clean...

Last time i paid somebody to use machine to polish.. back windshield only about 80$. clean clean for about a year then stain comes back again.
i tink the glass just needs to constantly wash and clean..

I think u guys can try another product called the glaco from autobac. Will have the same effect as rain x. But it does cause judding to the wiper. But once u applied it may tak a long time to clean it n shine. Hope can help.
