You just came out of a car wash and yet still see those white spots. You try cleaning it by hand inside and out and still no progress. What are these spots? Where do they come from? And what could you do to get rid of them?
Minerals like magnesium and calcium are abundant in certain water. A mineral residue is left behind when hard water dries or evaporates on a surface. As a result, you'll notice a haze of white flecks that won't come out with regular car washing. These calcium deposits, or spots, solidify with time and add a rough feel to your glass. They're also difficult to get rid of. Hard water stains can be caused by a variety of things, including your garden hose during a DIY wash, a car wash that doesn't properly treat its water supply, or even rain. So, what are your options for dealing with them?
You can use vinegar, lemon juice, essential oils, toothpaste, and some store-bought products. However, the best way to keep those spots off your vehicle is by preventing it. For example, parking in a garage or carport, treating any water spots as soon as possible, and treating the glass with water repellent.
