Removing hard water spots...

I bought a truck down in Mobile. It is a 2006. It spent it's whole life in GA, FL, and AL. There are hard water spots on the back glass. They aren't your typical water spots that can be cleaned up with soap and water or window cleaner, these are baked on. Is there any way to remove these?

I've used window cleaners and white vinegar. So far nothing.

On windows use soapy water and a razor blade.

White distilled vinegar works but you have to use a lot of it on a rag.

Bar keepers friend might help. It's soft enough not to scratch the glass and hard enough to remove the spots.

Zaino Glass Polish.

I had hard water spots on a windshield of a previous car that would not go away with anything. It ended up getting a big ass rock chip, so the windshield replacement fixed the spots!

I'm looking more into it and the spots may even be from acid rain.

Getting a new back glass is an option, but if I can spend only a few bucks and get it cleaned up, then I'd rather do that. I'll check out the Zaino Glass Polish

Just a little update. I got a sample of "Bio clean water stain remover" from Henderson Glass. I used a little steel wool to rub it in, and wow what a difference. I thought these would never come out. I highly recommend that product. After a little elbow grease, the glass is like night and day. All of the spots are gone!
