I have a boat and the lake waterspots are nasty especially when its over 100 degrees. I use soft water with a heavy dose of vinager and a little less of window cleaner concentrate. Micro fiber it on and use a dry one to wipe it off.

I also like Lucas Slick Mist Speed Wax to follow things up with for a final shine. It will get off the minor water spots. It may take 2-3 times with this solution but it has always worked in the past.

I make up a gallon of this at a time so it is always handy in a ruber maid container. good luck.

Thanks! How much vinegar and window cleaner concentrate is needed when mixing with the water?

On the boat I would mak a gallon, and have about a quart of vinagar and about 8 ounces of window cleaner and the rest soft water.

However this was for the boat and the hard water in the lakes is way hard.

For a car I would start more conservitive and add more vinager and window cleaner as needed

Those trim pieces are plastic not metal. Mr. Clean magic eraser works wonders.
