After washing your car, quickly run an absorber towel across the windows to soak up any excess water. This will also work on the paint. This can most likely be purchased at your local autoparts store, click the link to see what it looks like...and to get additional info.

use soap to get them off. once done, dry it off immediatly.

note: its much better when you do this while the car is cool. its when the car is heated when waterspots form. on a sunny day, wash your car under some shade.

always wash in the shade! that cannot be stressed enough. the sun burns the water into the outerlayer of the paint which causes all those dots to form. if the previously listed things dont work use a clay bar

clay bar works but there an easier way. Go to the local chemistry store and buy a gallon of HCL (hydro chloric acid). wear rubber gloves and goggles - then pour all over your car. Let it sit and rinse with water.







Just playing... dont do that.

try a glass rubbing compound. if that doesn't work, the only way to get it off is a high speed air buffer which can be done by a detailer.
