Dealing with Water Spots: How to Prevent and Remove Them from Your Car's Surface


Water spots, caused by mineral deposits in water, can mar your car's otherwise smooth and shiny surface. These spots are particularly common in areas with hard water. In this blog, presented by PureWax Car Care, we'll explore effective techniques to prevent and remove water spots from your car's exterior, ensuring it stays impeccable.

Prompt Drying:

After washing your car, use a clean microfiber towel to thoroughly dry the surface. This prevents water droplets from evaporating and leaving behind mineral deposits.

Filtered Water:

Consider using filtered water or a water softener when washing your car to reduce the mineral content in the water that causes water spots.

Vinegar Solution:

A mixture of distilled white vinegar and water (1:1 ratio) can be used to gently dissolve water spots. However, be cautious and perform a patch test on a small area first.

Protective Coating:

Applying a layer of wax or sealant after washing your car creates a barrier against water spots, making them easier to remove during future cleanings.
