    Go to your local harware store and buy some Steel Wool #0000
    You can use a glass cleaner as lubricant and buff over the water spots. That should do it...

    We used to use vinegar on our boats windshield when it had water spots because nothig else would take them out works well on water spots on paint to...be sure to follow with a glass cleaner tho because it can be really streaky
