Method 1 (Using 0000 Steel wool)

·      Lemon joy.
·      Lemon ammonia.
·      Gallon of water.

·      Vinegar.
·      Bio clean.

Steps:


1.   You need to purchase “0000” steel wool, make sure you purchase the same code and no other as glass is very sensitive and you have to be very careful about the scratches.

2.   In one gallon of water add one table spoon of lemon joy and two table spoon of lemon ammonia and mix it well. Then apply it on the glass that is the paste you made along with the steel wool. With this paste some of the outer stains and new ones will come off very easily.

3.   You may rub lemon juice on the glass to treat the remaining stains. Then make a paste mixing baking soda as well as vinegar. Rub it on the stains in circular motions as this is the best way to treat the stains. Baking soda will help to loosen up and break the stain further.
