pwnt by sprinkler, how to removed etched waterspots?

On a dark blue car, I tried washing it and stripping away the wax but the spots still remain.

How do you get rid of waterspots without breaking out a polisher..

This thread makes me laugh.

The clay bar fan boys who litter this forum suggest it for everything. Mainly things that it won't work on, or have a much simpler approach. (tar, grease, etc...)

Yet one of the main things clar bars are good at removing, is water spots. And nobody suggest it

So the answer is, try a clay bar.

1. Cry
2. Rubbing compound
3. wax till your arm falls off.
4.
5. Profit. Maybe.

And I know for a FACT that claybar doesn't take etched waterspots off of a dark blue car. a FACT. Don't try to dispute with me because I will go out and take pics and prove you wrong.

Use a good cleaner wax or a good polish such as Klasse All in One.

I used this stuff (can't remember the name) to remove iron deposits from my sprinkler. It didn't harm the clearcoat and took the spots right off. They were really bad, looked like the car was rusting from the iron deposits. I will post the name tonight when I get home.

Like I said, fine, I'll go take a macro today. I've claybared the car twice and tried to wax the holy hell outta the watermark, but it's still there.

edit: all Zaino products too.

It worked for me. Perhaps you left it too long, the water spots have gone thru the clear coat, etc... or maybe you are doing it wrong. But I've used it to remove water spots.
