Well the sprinkler at work got me and left the hood covered in white hard water stains. The car has 200 miles on her and is grey green. I waxed the hood with a cleaner wax but you can still see the rings of the deposits! did I screw up? and how do I fix it? Thanks!! :goodness:

I don't know of any car products specifically for hard water, but CLR will disolve hard water with no problem. I don't know how safe it is to use on a car, but it is worth a shot.

Try Gel-Gloss from Home Depot or some such hardware store. Safe for clear coats and glass. If you need a little bit more cleaning try No7 white polishing compound. Both products are cheap and good. Be sure and wax after using.

Yes, vinegar works. But do not use it in conjuction with any soaps... ex. adding it to car soap.

I did use the viegar full strength and left it on the car for approx 5 minutes and it worked great! I followed up with Klasse all in one and then carnuba. Thanks for the greatadvice :D
