Hi, I'm Rachel Yatuzis and I'm going to show you how to remove water spots from a car. First off, you want to prevent water spots on your car. If you clean it you know, and if you're liking your car looking good, no water spots, especially if it's a white or a black car water spots show up so easily. You want to have a shammy or something like this to dry your car off with after you wash it. And do it in sections. Say, wash this part of the car, spray it off, wash this part of the car, spray it off and then dry the whole side. That's what I do. So before the water even drys you can wipe it of and get to it. That'll keep it from getting water spots. Now if you have water spots on your car, you can take the same shammy or any dry cloth, a soft cloth, and be careful, make sure your car is clean. Because if there's dirt on it this could make scratches on it. But use a shammy or whatever soft cloth you have and just buff. The water spots will disappear right in front of your eyes. You can spray, you know some type of car cleaner. I know that there's auto detail spray that you can buy at your local auto parts store that's really great for after you wash your car. You use a rag and then spray it on the rag and wipe it. It's awesome, it works really really well. So, just go to your local auto parts store and ask you know, if they have anything for that. But try to get your car dry with a shammy before it dries in the sun and that'll keep them from appearing in the first place. I'm Rachel Yatuzis and that is how you remove water spots from your car.
