Buy a clay bar kit, Meguiar's Ultimate Compound, A fine polish like scratch-x, and a nice cleaner wax, like NXT2 Tech Wax in a can.

For chrome trim around the windows, use 0000 steel wool.

Also good ON the windows with a well lubricated window.

True^^^. A little water or glass cleaner with the 0000 steel wool helps. 000 works too, but I like to play it safe.

Or try "Glass Science Glass Scrub" on the windows. I have used that recently and had good results. A little labor intensive though.

I had some really bad water stains from a sprinkler at my old apartment complex.

Some diluted vinegar (a weak acid) got the hard water spots easily.

I was gentle with the paint and a little more aggressive on the windows, but it worked well.

When I had water stains on my windows I used steel wool like TSS said until I found Detailers Pro High performance glass restorer. The steel wool works too, but the glass restorer plus a car buffer works really fast
