How do you get rid of hard water spots?
 
I washed it and the spots are still there. Any thoughts on how to get rid of them?

For the glass I mix a little white vinegar and water in a spray bottle. Spray the glass then wipe it with a microfiber towel.

Best thing to do for the paint is to dry your car as quickly and completely as possible after washing. I also use the vinegar on the paint as well. It is very effective.

Will the vinegar hurt the wax? Also I go the spots from a rain shower? Go figure.

What about a glass cleaner? would that hurt anything? This is a new car to me and it has a good wax job on it.

Windex. That's what I use between washes works great hasn't done any thing to the paint also works on chrome.

Just get the original blue windex the others will leave streaks.

The blue windex worked the best, thanks for the help

I also have spots on both the paint and windows. So blue windex will remove the spots?
