Righto,

Well the whole hog on the R8 on the weekend, wash polish etc.

Cleaned her right up, got in the car and went for a drive to notice all glass, particularly the windscreen, has a calcium or bore water stain on it.

What do I use to get it off?
Do/can I polish the glass?

Give this a go mate, it takes a bit of elbow grease but works well.

Autoglym do a good glass polish that doesn't require much elbow grease at all .....depends how fit you feel on the day I suppose. Great for the inside too....smear on, let dry the just wipe softly away.....no residue.

I'd give it a go with the clay bar first. Minimal effort and usually maximum results. If that fails then try one of the polishes suggested.

How did you dry the windows when washing was finished? It could be prevented by using something like this - http://waxit.com.au/proddetail.asp?prod=SM8023&cat=38 . Or if its more stubborn go a clay bar or a glass polish product. A lot of polishes for paintwork would not be suitable for glass as they can leave behind oils.

Other stuff that works for stubborn marks is Cerapol - ceramic glass cooktop cleaner. Just a little on a soft cloth or paper towel and joy will be amazed at what comes off.
Fresh paper towel to finish up.
have also used the stainless steel cleaner on glass.
Both can repel to a degree.

Only if its toothpaste from Aldi or the Reject Shop, otherwise toothpaste can be expensive.
Does work on glass but don't let it dry completely.

I worked for a window tinter for a little while.
We used a razor blade scrapper and soapy water to clean the glass before applying the tint.
I have used one ever since, the sharper the better.
I have taken off bore water stain before, but it was not easy!;)
I have just recently tried the clay bar and had great results as well!
