    Default Water spotting

    Whilst decorating the bathroom I was washing the cars,I left it too long before I dried them, and they were covered in water spots, I managed to get them off the paint work with quick detailer but it was very difficult to get off the glass,short of drying the cars before the water dries does any one know a good method of cleaning the glass, I have just spent ages trying polish,s glass polish, rain x, and megs glass cleaner, they are clean now but it was hard work, i Think it is easier to do just one job at a time in future........ the cars will have to come first,

    I use Simoniz glass cleaner with a bit of folded kitchen towel, works a treat.

    Pop down to Halfrauds and buy yourself a Megs Water Magnet or AutoGlym drying cloth, both will mop up the excess water.

    Know how you feel Ed, just having 5 mins with a brew. A good tip spray your drying towel with QD and if desired give each panel a spray with QD if they are dryng too quickly, works a treat. Only thing is I'm going through quick detailers at a rate of knots.

    I use Autogylm glass cleaner but no matter how many times i do it, i still end up with spot marks on the glass which just will not go away.. Probably need to use a paste glass polish!

    When I pile on the power, it wheel spins then the "tc" cuts in, The underlaying problem is manovering it on the bend in the stairs.
