1) As soon as you notice water spots use a quick detailing spray (for future fererence )
2)Wash your car as normal w/ shampoo
3)Rinse
4)Now use distilled vinegar, put on mit or sponge and wipe it on one section at a time and let it sit for 30 to 60 seconds and rinse.
5) When you are done wash and rinse the car again
6) The vinegar removes wax, so wax your car again.

Note:
If water spots are allowed to stay for more than a week or so, the minerals will etch the paint. In this case, using vinegar will remove the mineral spots, but the paint will have etched spots (dimples). It is necessary to use a polish or mild polishing compound to restore the paint surface.

Hope this helps!!
