    I picked up another car a few months ago. It came from the portland, OR area. The washer jets are clogged up with what looks to be mineral deposits and one of the jets sprays over the car. I have water spots on my roof, rear window, and trunk lid. It looks as if the stains are etched into the paint and glass.

    I am wondering if the water from that part of the country does this. I have never seen anything like it before.

    I went over the areas with S100 cleaner by hand as it was the only thing I had. It helped a little but did not remove them. There is a place on the roof where it looks like it built up a lot. I was not able to get any of that out by hand.

    Is there a particular cleaner I should try over another?

    Thanks

    S100 SEC isn't very aggressive. Like spark plugs said, you will need to use a more aggressive polish. The product list is filled with them. Just be advised that some water spots actually etch the paint and you may not be able to remove them completely.
