the newspaper is only a temporary fix, the ink from the paper fills the imperfections, but they will come back. i would try a clay bar first, if that doesnt work then they are probably permanent etching and would have to be polished out.

I had a pretty bad problem with water spots that no glass cleaner could fix. I used a product called "Bar Keepers Friend". It comes in a can like Comet, but it is a very mild abrasive and worked well with some elbow grease. It took a couple applications, but it worked.

eagle one 20/20. the spots dont go away completely but they are invisible to the naked eye until you look at the window from a very odd angle. i use the stuff on mirrors and windows and it is so very nice.

water spots

best thing i have found and it works fantastic is glass science, glass scrub, its sold at shucks by the wiper blades, new cream cleaner. Use a sponge and water, green sided ones work great on the hard spots. It was the only product i tried that actually worked. , its in a small black bottle about the size of chrome polish bottle.

I worked detailing cars last summer and for water spots we used this bottle that said 'Y2K Acid' and we weren't supposed to spray it on anything but windows and we couldn't breathe it and we had to wash it off seconds after spraying it on (which makes me believe it was real acid, lol). It worked every time.
