    Been asked by my station manager if I was willing to clean the windows of my fire station which I'm happy to do. A few of the windows are close to where the trucks get washed and are almost white with water marks where they get sprayed every day, what can I use to help with the first clean? Thanks all.

    There are many types of hard water glass clearers out there. Sounds to me whatever you try to use is going to be a pig to remove.

    Probably an acid based glass clearer would work better than a paste type cleaner in that situation something like Winsol CRYSTAL CLEAR 550

    Add a load of vinegar into the mix, I use it on shower doors and it works a treat, its an acid afterall, but I've had occasions where its not worked. Maybe a fine grade of wire wool could be good for agitating it.
