Question Water Spots on Glass?

What do you use to remove water spots/ acid rain spots on glass?

Mix white vinegar and water 50/50 in a spray bottle and use like windex. I use newspaper to wipe the glass with. Then apply Rain X and it will be easier next time.

We have smoked glass Vessel sink and Shower, every single drop not wiped up immediately shows. We tried it all (search the net for water spots) out of desperation I tried some of the Leverage polish and believe it or not worked the best

Now I have to order more it's boat detail time and mine has been taken away from me and is in the bathroom cabinet.

BTW we have well water treated and filtered but it still has the salts and minerals I'm not sure I would compare it to acid rain but it may be close.
We also follow up with RainX
I have Steps & Bubbles!

The Vinegar/Water mix works. Its been a long time solution in the glass business.

For the boat/autos, I also use the Mr. Clean Car Wash purifier for our well water. It also makes things much easier since all our vehicles are black, dark blue, or dark green; and the boat has deep purple and black on it.
