Default Polishing out spots on sunroof glass

My sunroof glass has lots of water spots etched into it. What product can I use to polish them out? I have an assortment of Mothers chrome and metal polishers as well as paint polishes. Are any of these safe for 2nd duty on my glass?

Try our Mothers Chrome Polish -- it's safe for glass.

If some of the clarity issues are caused by deposits, try a white vinegar and water solution of about 1:3 and keep it damp for a few minutes, then dry and try the polish.

Much beyond that, you might have to get a glass polish with a cerium oxide powder -- NAPA should be able to get you one, or they are available online at places such as Eastwood.

If you clean it up with Chrome Polish or even a baking soda solution, it likely won't bother you as much.

Chrome polish worked out nicely. It was able to remove the water marks. Not completely so, but probably because I stopped where I did. As it is, it looks very clear!

Glad it worked for you, worked very well in the past for me too.

The last few times I used it I used the power ball and it got the spots off 100%.
