Im sorry about this but I cant find the thread about waterspots. Could someone please tell me again how to get rid of them, please. One more question, what do you pefer instead of armoal. Thanks guys and sorry about asking more than once.

To get rid of water spots, you can use some household vinigar. It will break down the calcium instantly, and fo some odd reason you will crave fish and chips afterwards LOL!!
I use Zaino tire shine and Meguiars Rubber Dressing for all the areas where armor all is used. You are a wise man to keep armor all away from your car.

Hey, I just tryed the vinegar and I still have waterspots. I should of said this earlier but the waterspots are on my windows. Is there anything else I could try?

When push comes to shove and those pesky waterspots wont budge, I have been known to use some 0000 steel wool on glass to get rid of water spots. Be sure not to use it on the paint or you will be writing death threats to me. Just start off gently and increase pressure as necessary, just do a test area in an inconspicuous area to make sure that the steel wool doesn't scratch your glass

No prob, let me know how it turns out.

spot-free rinse is what I use.

I forgot. Get an absorber. It's like a shammy. They dry awesome with no spots.

I stick to Zaino Wash :)

Hey again, these waterspots are really confusing me. When I use the wool, only some come off??? It almost seems like they are in the glass?? Im going to try to post a pic but I dont think I will be able to get a pic where you will be able to see them, but ill try. I dont have the camera its my gf, so It will be tomorrow until I will be able to get the pic. Since I can get the pic right now, anymore suggestions? Thanks for all your help!!

Yes some of the spots actually etch themselves into the glass. I just detailed my Moms car this weekend and it had some hard calcification in the rear window, and 90% of it is etched in the glass. It most likely will come out with Eastwood Co's glass compound kit. "Man Eastwood should be paying me to be a compensated endorser for all the referrals I give LOL!!!!"

Where could I get that glass compound kit from? Is easy to use and how much is it gonna cost me? Thanks!!
