How to remove calcium deposits on auto glass
Even in areas affected with hard water, removing calcium deposits from your auto glass is reasonably simple. The primary culprit when it comes to creating calcium deposits on windshields and other auto glass is the sprinklers. When car windows are sprayed by sprinklers and the water is allowed to evaporate and leave its minerals behind, windows become spotted with ugly hard-water spots.
Clean your auto glass with the commercial ammonia-based window cleaner. Spray the cleaner on the glass and wipe it away with a paper towel. This will remove the surface dust, dirt and common grime, leaving only the calcium deposits. Wipe the glass clean with a microfiber cloth to remove the last traces of dirt. Moisten a microfiber cloth with white vinegar. White vinegar can be purchased at any shop. Wipe your glass with the white vinegar. Concentrate on areas of calcium build-up, allowing the white vinegar to soak into the calcium and loosen it.
Spray the glass with your ammonium-based window cleaner. Wipe it firmly with a paper towel to wash away any remaining vinegar and to take off any last vestiges of calcium. Check your glass for any remaining calcium deposits. If any traces remain, repeat the steps.
