Waterspots, key info to help you understand them get rid of them and stop them coming back

Waterspots on the surface can be removed with water spot remover, you need to neutralize it after using, this first video explains.  You can also use water or window cleaner, all-purpose cleaner or waterless wash as long as you neutralize it.  If using water make sure you dry it properly to avoid new water spots, we recommend the performer drying towel.

Once removed we highly recommend applying a wax or sealant like enhanced wax from Autostolz.  Their cream in the pop top lasts longest (9-12 months), the spay lasts 2-3 months but is quicker and easier to apply.  We use both on our cars, the cream as a one off, then top up with a quick spray after each wash.

Washing with the new Autostolz premium auto wash helps reduce water spots as it adds protection each wash and gives not just amazing shine but also water beading just from a wash.

The kit is a great buy and is everything Adam recomend3ed for his wife Michelle when she wanted a simple way to clean her Mazda that she loves without mucking around.
