A friend told me about a product called Spot X and I bought a bottle on Amazon. It comes with two pads and instructions. I used it today and my glass is like new! I usually end up with a product that doesn't work like they say it will, but this time, I am thrilled with the results! Just thought some of you out there might find this interesting.
Nice to know about any product that does what it claims it's supposed to. Water spots have been a problem since the beginning of time. I've had to work so incredibly hard in removing them from all of our boats over the years as well as the all the rest of the vehicles we've owned. But, the answer was simple and it's very common on this earth. VINAGER!
I hate water spots. So much so, that I just recently, as in the last week, spend almost $370.00, at Costco on line, to purchase their CR Spotless water system, Deionized water car wash system. Now, recently purchased toad, a 2011 GMC Sierra Extended Cab 4x4 is Fire engine Red. The paint, was neglected for quite a while before we purchased the truck. It took me nearly a week, of washing, rubbing out, claying, more rubbing out, more claying, waxing, more waxing, more claying etc. to get that paint to where it's smooth as glass, even better than glass. It's now show quality. I can put a drop of water in the middle of the hood and the entire drop will roll off.
But, even with the paint in that condition, when the truck is washed, it will hold water. And, in that case, with our water here, out of the hose, you better dry it quickly. So, in comes the Deionized water system. Well, I washed the truck as normal, rinsed it with the garden hose and, then, rinsed it again with the Deionized system. What was really tough for me, was to "walk away" from a completely wet truck. But, I did it.
Now this was in the morning, temp around 70+ degrees. I left it sit there, in the sun, about two hours. By the time I went out to look at it, it was about 85 degrees. Guess what, not one water spot. That is with the exception of about a dozen, rather large ones, on one corner of the roof. Apparently I'd not done a thorough job of rinsing the roof with the Dio system. I thought no big deal. I figured my paint was so nice that I'd just "Wax" those spots off in a heartbeat. WRONG
It was amazing how hard those spots were on there. Wax didn't even phase them.
So, I broke out the Vinager/water spray bottle. I sprayed it on to those spots and, got down to get a new micro fiber towel to dry it off. They were completely gone in a matter of seconds. And, with very little labor.
So, that's my little contribution to your situation. So, if you run out of yur product, and you've got some vinegar hanging around, mix up about a 50/50 solution and spray it on them. Let it sit for about a few seconds and then, wipe them off.
