Re: Water Spots help!

I'd certainly like to know what the chemisty of water spots is, I've only had a few cars over the years that are susceptible to them and dont know why. I mean, with clear coat and waxes, they shouldnt even form, cant think of any other surfaces that are so effected and, in the case of glass, you can get them off with more water. I had one car so bad you couldnt even wash it in the shade, dry instantly, and not see big white circles everywhere. Got so bad I eventually had to take a polishing compound to the car to remove them and it did prevent recurrence, though the finish was an older one. Whatever you do, dont try ammoniated products, they'll dull the finish permanently.
