Water marking/etching glass sink
Glass sinks are beautiful! The water deposits you speak of can be from two sources - hard water in which mineralization occurs, and alkaline products or alkaline water. If you have mineral deposits they will easily remove with vinegar and water solution, start at a half and half mix.
It is recommended by most manufacturers to wipe the water out after every use, which is not usually told us when we make the purchase, is it?! :-)
If this is a vanity or bathroom sink, you want to be especially careful that you do not pour or spill cosmetics, skin care products, nor other subtsances that may be alkaline. Many facial cleaners, toiletries, perfumes and household cleaners are alkaline. If you have alkaline damage, it's not possible to repair the etching.
I will hope your problem is hard water or water deposits - try the vinegar solution. I use white vinegar. Good luck, and we'd love to see a photo posted of your sink!
