DP High Performance Glass Restorer

DP High Performance Glass Restorer

More than a glass cleaner, it’s a glass restorer!

Detailer’s Pro Series High Performance Glass Restorer is a gentle glass polish that safely restores clarity to windshields and windows. It’s the ultimate solution to water spots and cloudy glass. Use Detailer’s Pro Series High Performance Glass Restorer on auto glass, shower doors, and household doors and windows.

Water spots are created when drops of water evaporates off the surface of your vehicle. All water contains minerals, including iron and calcium, and sometimes salt. Rain water contains all these things plus pollution. When the drop evaporates, these trace elements are left on your vehicle to etch the outline of the drop. They are the reason that water spots are permanent even though water is not. Because the spots are often etched into glass, cleaners cannot remove them.

Detailer’s Pro Series High Performance Glass Restorer removes mild etched water spots from glass and restores perfect clarity. The unsightly cloud of water spots that exists on the windshield out of the wipers’ range can be removed!

Detailer’s Pro Series High Performance Glass Restorer can also be used to remove water spots, sap, bug splatter, and films from chrome and windows. This citrus-based cleaner can safely loosen sticky contaminants so they wipe off easily. Your windshield will be restored to its original clarity.

Detailer's Pro Series DP High Performance Glass Restorer gently polishes glass to restore clarity.

Detailer's Pro Series High Performance Glass Restorer can be applied by hand or with a polisher. Always buff it off with a soft, clean microfiber towel.
Buff off Detailer's Pro Series DP High Performance Glass Restorer with a soft clean microfiber towel.

Detailer’s Pro Series High Performance Glass Restorer works by gently exfoliating the surface of the glass on a microscopic level. It does not scratch the glass. The thick cream safely pulls contaminants out of the glass, removes mineral deposits, and then smoothes out mildly etched glass until it is crystal clear. Detailer’s Pro Series High Performance Glass Restorer safely restores the glass in the same way jewelers rouge polishes precious metals. Your vehicle’s windshield and windows will appear virtually invisible!

To prevent future water spots, clean your windows regularly and, if possible, dry your vehicle after it gets wet. Remember, water from sprinklers or water hoses can cause water spots, too. Carry a microfiber towel in the vehicle to at least dry the glass following a rain storm. A few minutes of preventative maintenance will save you time and effort in the future.

For the damage that has already been done, use Detailer’s Pro Series High Performance Glass Restorer to remove water spots and mild mineral etching and to restore perfect clarity to windshields and windows.


  1. Detailer’s Pro Series High Performance Glass Restorer can be applied by hand or with a polisher. To apply by hand, pour a nickel size amount onto the orange side of the Wolfgang German Polish 'N Wax Applicator.
  2. Rub the product onto the glass in overlapping circular motions. Allow a haze to form. Buff the glass with a microfiber towel.
  3. To apply by machine, use a polishing pad on a variable speed polisher. We recommend using a dual action polisher because cutting is not needed to gently polish the glass.
  4. Work the polish into the glass at a low speed (no more than 3000 OPM) using minimal pressure. When the polish starts to dry, turn the machine off and lift it off the glass.
  5. Use a microfiber towel to wipe away the haze and buff the glass to a shine.

Poor description.
November 26, 2014
Needed to state it needs to be Applied with an orbital polisher. Does not take off any water spots by hand rubbing.
Merchant Response:
Thanks for submitting the review, Kevin. For heavy water spots, a DA polisher like the Porter Cable is going to be far more effective than using your hand. Unlike your hand which gets tired, the Porter Cable just keeps on going! Regarding the shipping, there were some delays due to inclement weather. We do apologize for the inconvenience, but unfortunately this was out of our control.
Extremely slow shipping. This is my last purchase from here.

I tried it on the windshield of my 99 Mercedes SL 500 and the results were spot on.I repeated the process twice to be safe.
Easy application.
Seems a little high price wise and then add on mailing charges.

It works !

I had minor hard water etching on all of my exterior glass surfaces from using invisible glass. I applied this product by hand using the Wolfgang German applicator and it actually worked. It stripped the surface of all imperfections except for some slightly deeper stone chips. I then applied the expensive hydrophobic sealant and walked away being satisfied with the results. It would obviously be faster if you used a polisher but use of this product is very manageable by hand. It should be noted that you could probably just use rainex or Aquapel as a sealant as a next step.

DP 515 Glass restorer review
September 6, 2013
Vehicle is a 2000 Honda Odyssey. side mirror has etched in water spots. 13 yrs parking on the street and sprinklers gets it all the time. got the product in the mail. read the directions. went to Autozone and bought a foam applicator. did a quick wash and dry of the mirror. damped the applicator with water and applied a nickel size amount of the product. applied and buffed out the mirror. note - took a while of buffing for the product to become a dry haze. wipe dry with a towel. tip - apply the product at the edge of the applicator, it will be easier to apply and buff out the edges of the mirror. did this about 4-5 times. the results are clear, no more water spots. i believe and recommend this product.

I Love This Stuff
May 22, 2011
I really didnt think I would like this stuff nor did I think it would be helpful but boy was I wrong. It is very easy to use and it works great at cleaning up the windshield and removing those hard water spots that glass cleaner alone wont remove.

Great results so easy
May 17, 2011
My mirrors were so waterspotted I could hardly see out of them. With DP GR, a terry towel and mild elbow grease they look like brand new again. I had many spots on my windshield also and applied with a DA and orange pad and all the spots are gone. This is so easy to use and the results I got were amazing!

I literally tried everything to get water spots off my windows. It was the only aggrevating thing to see after spending hours detailing my cars. Bought DP and WOW, incredible difference. WATER SPOTS GONE! Never thought my glass could look so good!

November 11, 2010
I was shocked by the results I got with this product. I had some really bad water spots on my side view mirrors that would just not come off with regular glass cleaner. After applying a small amount I let it sit for about a minute, then wiped it clean with a microfiber towel. The water spots were gone just like that and the glass looked brand new!

Great cleaner for water spots

This product works great on water spots on glass. Minimum effort is required to get water spots and mineral deposits removed, even when applying the product by hand.

This is the best glass cleaner I have ever tried. It does exactly what it claims it can do: provide virtually invisible car windows. I know this to be true because the bump on my head is still there.

Works good. Try using vinegar to remove the water spots on the windows. Follow up with a window cleaner. You will love the results.

I bought this to use on glass and headlights. It exceeded my expectations; though it did take a bit of elbow grease by hand (will have to try with orbital). My windshield is crystal clear, though it is frustrating to see every tiny chip in the glass now. Also tried, and found this to work great on the polished aluminum exhaust and plumbing. The exhaust now has a mirror finish, and the plumbing (badly dulled by a polish I regret trying) looks great.

I have tried many cleaners trying to get water stains off my car windows on my 06 Toyota Solara with negative results so I was a little doubtful that this product would be any different, but I tried it and it really does clean them, the side windows were a mess and now look like new.I am so happy with the results.Thanks for a great product that really does do the job.

Good for stoves, too
September 1, 2008
I use this product by hand to keep otherwise hard-to-remove spots from staying on my car's windows. It doesn't disappoint. I also use it on my flat surface stove where it can remove all the burnt crud, albeit with some effort. Works better than other stove cleaning products that I've tried, though, and makes the top look new.

My 2003 Honda S2000 was perfect, except for the water spots on all the exterior glass. Tried straight vinegar and a couple other glass cleaners with no results. Rats! Got the DP glass restorer today and, honestly, did not have high expectations. Whaddaya know! this completely removed the etches from the door windows, and removed 90% from the highly etched windshield! I think if I use a machine polisher I will get 100% etch removal. Thank you. Wow! a product that actually does work as advertised :)

My 2006 Acura had hard water stains on the windows. NOTHING would make them go away. I even tried vineger and lots of elbow grease. Nope. This stuff (with about as much work as you would use to polish/wax your paint) works. It removed my "etches" from hard water drying on my waters.

April 18, 2007
I tried dilute vinegar, I tried pure vinegar, I tried car cleaner, I tried CLR lime remover, I let these things soak on a paper towel, obviously I tried every glass cleaner in the house. Nothing touched the water spots. The DP Glass Restorer came yesterday and I tried it last night. It worked. I am deleriously happy. It worked.

DP High Performance Glass Cleaner
January 6, 2007
I tried many off the self glass cleaners from varouus stores and none of them even bagan to remove the years of mineral spots embedded in the glass of the BMW I just purchased. The DP product worked like a charm, the first time. It's nice, and rare, to find a product that works as advertised. Two thumbs, way up!

First &#8211; Great Product. I like crystal clean glass. This did it. My back window of my truck is factory tinted. It had an unbelievable amount of water spots which were very obvious because of the dark tint. I tried this product by hand and found it needed too much elbow grease to get it to clean up the windows so I used my buffer. That makes the job much easier. Of course if you do not let them get bad by hand would probably work well.
