I would like to know how I can get hard water deposits off my outside windows. They are old and I do not want to replace the whole window

The safe way is to soak paper towels in vinegar and stick them to the windows for a few hours and let them melt water spots. The Funway is to use rubber gloves and wet paper towels with muriatic acid and wipe them clean instantly

White vinegar takes calcium off in only a few hours, let say overnight. It is safer, easy to find, and very cheap.

Sure. Vinegar is a good safe option. Muriatic acid is also very cheap and readily available at any hardware store for $4 per gallon. CLR is relatively expensive at $7 per quart.
