alright, i'll have to try that later in the week and then go over it with glass cleaner to get rid of the vinegar smell.

Well, it shouldn't smell much at all. It'* on the outside of the glass, correct?

No, no, don't leave it on there indefinitely, just long enough to dissolve the deposits, then rinse well!!

You can also try to claybar the window. It really works on stubborn spots and imbedded dirt.

If they are recent, vinegar will often work. if that doesn't work go for the clay bar (or possibly some sort of compound)
