Removing Water Spots?

What are water spots and where do they come from?

Water spots are caused by dissolved minerals in water. Calcium carbonate (sometimes called lime) is the most common and appears white and chalky when dry. These minerals form ions when dissolved in water, when the water evaporates, it leaves the minerals behind. That's why water heaters, coffee pots, and humidifiers get coated with minerals over time. Harder your water, the more dissolved minerals.

How do I prevent water spots?

Remove the water before it evaporates. If you dry a surface with an absorbent material like a chamois or a microfiber towel, the minerals are absorbed with the water, so no water spots occur.

I have white water spots all over my car, should I compound it?

Start by washing the vehicle and using Chemical Guys Water Spot Remover. Rubbing the paint will scratch it.
