How to remove water stains from car bodywork?

The first thing you should do to remove water stains from the bodywork is to wash your car with water to remove any traces of dust or dirt.

These debris can make it difficult to locate areas with severe water spots. Use your microfiber towel to dry your car thoroughly so you can move on to the next step.

Make a 50:50 mixture of water and vinegar and spray it on the water spots. If there are a lot of stains, you can also use a sponge so you can clean more areas. Be sure not to put too much vinegar.

Do not clean immediately after spraying the mixture on the water spots. Wait at least two to three minutes for best results. The mixture will loosen the minerals that are embedded in your car so leaving it for a few minutes provides better results.

Finally, wipe off the mixture with a microfiber towel. Using a microfiber towel provides better results as it can absorb more of the mixture and lasts longer than a traditional cotton towel.
