    Default Water spots on tow vehicle

    A sprinkler put water spots all over my black Silverado, how do I get them out?

    Cleaner wax or clay bar if really bad.

    Mix vinegar and water in a spray bottle and wipe down the spots with it. it will take them off. Wash afterwards.

    I use straight white vinegar on the boat, which stays in the water all summer and it looks brand new after a good cleaning.


    What is do is;

    -Make sure the surface is cool
    -Spray down liberally one whole side. When you get to the other end, start wiping down the vinegar you sprayed first.
    -Use a microfiber towel

    Yes WAX it twice even, because the Vinagar is stripping everything you have protecting it. This also helps stop mildew, spiders, bugs, and other critters from living in your boat. I have been doing this for years on the carpet under the seats.

    I only use 50/50 in the boat though LOL

    I had the business whose sprinklers turned on and put spots on my car give me a free detailing and vinegar wash. It cleaned right up. Perhaps they learned a lesson of watering during the day.
