    Question Salt Build Up On Glass

    Does anyone have any idea how to actually remove salt spray build up on glass. I have tried pretty much everything I have read on line. These include vinegar, CLR, amonia, steel wool, Scrubbing Bubbles, razor blades, baking soda. If it was on goggle I probably tried it.

    As a last resort I was going to order some SaltX out of Virginia. Has anyone tried this or am I just throwing good money after bad.
    Thanks

    After cleaning with white vinegar, you can coat windows with windshield water repellant solution.

    Thanks Abuela. Problem is I can't get it clean enough to seal.

    Mix a 4:1 solution of water to muriatic acid (one gallon of water to one quart of acid).

    Wear rubber gloves.
    Add the acid to the water

    Clean a small section of the window at a time. Try not to let the solution come in contact with the window frame. Wipe on, catch any drips, wipe off. Repeat. Finish with a solution of vinegar and water (same ratio of water to vinegar) and a couple of drops of liquid dish soap.

    Don't try this on windows that are hot or in direct sunlight. If the window is too hot, the liquid evaporates too quickly. If the window is in direct sunlight then it is probably too hot and the liquid will evaporate before eating the salt scale.

    This solution works best as a soak, but it's not feasible or desirable to soak an entire window so you are left with wipe on wipe off.

    Good luck.

    The muriatic directions are good but be sure to wear eye protection!
