    After visiting a new client today I informed her she had real bad hard water stains plus a lot of construction run off stains. I'm wondering what different products/chemicals you guys use for this kinda work?

    I've actually used t cut before & it's worked. Have now got a t cut specialy for car windows & use a scrubber & after a bit of elbow grease comes off. Just buff afterwards. Cannot for the life of me think what it's called but is for car windscreens.

    Viakal is awesome! Never had a problem with this stuff. Gets off the hardest of water stains. Sometimes though the glass is damaged, I guess then you'd need to use some sort of t cut. Like someone said in another thread you've gotta try a few chems and see what's best for you.

    jewellers rouge is good stuff but expensive but still need elbow grease , more & more custys are getting houses re roughcasted now days & this is causing an increase in this staining problem, also connifer trees can cause stains on glass similar too.

    It really difficult to remove hard water stain, Easy of bang can be useful, it is specially made for removing hard water stain.
