Stains on the windows

Stains on the windows

Stains on the windows


I was working on a project, the property wanted to keep the glass partitions, for space problems we had to leave it outdoors. It rained and the glass got wet and received the natural sun. The problem is the appearance of stains on the glass I have tried to remove the stains with all cleaning products without success. Any product that can remove it?

Thanks for anyone's response.

Hello, I think you could try to remove with products that contains bleach.

RE: Stains on the windows

Are you sure they're stains? Pure water does tend to be slightly acidic after exposure to atmosphere. There's a famous incident that occurred in my childhood where a scientist called he had discovered a new form of water, calling it polymerized water. Later, he found out that his glass beakers had been etched by his "pure" water and there were molecules of silica floating around in his water samples.

In my experience, these crystals are very difficult to remove the spots. I have gone through the same situation using various cleaning products without success.
