My wife parked next to the sprinklers at my condo. The next morning when I got to the shop I gave it a wash and the water spots still remained. I did try a claybar it did improve but was still very noticeable. I did not want to break out the polisher to remove these annoying spots. I quickly grabbed a bottle of McKee's RV Water Spot Remover Gel, And hoped that it would prevent me from breaking out the buffer.

I grabbed a microfiber applicator pad and applied a quater sized amount of product.

I worked the area by hand not applying much pressure. The liquid is very thick. After my pad was primed I only needed a few drops per panel.

On the bottle it recommends using a damp towel, for easier removal. I misted a few sprays of N914 @ Waterless ratio and it removed fairly easy. I did buff off with a second towel to ensure a streak free finish.

The Water Spot Remover Gel revealed the metal flake in the paint removing all traces of any water spots.

To say that I am relieved that I did not have to use a polisher to remove the spots is a under statement!

Nice save, Joe. Does it remove any LSP in the process?

I won the giveaway on Autopia and did a review on the majority of that line over there. There were 3 of us who won and the deal was supposed to be we write the reviews, I never saw another review at all.

That wheel wash and polish WORKS AWESOME specially if the wheels are polished or bright originally. I have some pics of the wheels I did on my website under the "recreation" tab. That was spray and rinse no scrubbing like the bottle said.

Interesting! So is this water spot remover similar to a paint cleansing cream like: BLACKFIRE Gloss Enhancing Polish, P21S Gloss Enhancing Paintwork Cleanser, or Pinnacle Paintwork Cleansing Lotion?

Joe - thanks for the writeup. good to know this product works. My wife parked her car next to sprinklers a week after I did a full paint correction on her black maxima. In the hot AZ summer sun no less! Vinegar didn't remove it so I had to break out the polisher and remove them. What a pain. She knows not to do that anymore but if it happens again I'll know what to use.

Why are you not wearing gloves?

That's what skin is for - nature's gloves.

Glad you enjoy my reviews! And the Waterless Wheel Polish is really good stuff, The UV50 is also another "sleeper" for pro detailers. Whats great about UV50 is it cleans and dresses your tires, So it removes brown dirt and gives a nice shine all in one step. I also use this product alot for mobile details when the client isnt getting a higher end detail.

Keep an eye out for it soon!


Why are you not wearing gloves?
I always ask my self this, Detailing gave me hand eczema something I never had before detailing. However this is not a messy product you get it on the applicator pad and work it in.


Trade in the wife! lol

I kinda like her! lol

I would compare McKee's 37 Coating Prep Polish more to the above products, Water Spot Remover Gel is designed to dissolve the water spots, It is non abrasive.


Joe - thanks for the writeup. good to know this product works. My wife parked her car next to sprinklers a week after I did a full paint correction on her black maxima.

OUCH, yes this what I was worried about as well. Unfortunately pair a black car in sun with sprinkler water marks, and that is a combination of nightmare. Any LSP wil almost certainly fail if you dont act fast enough.


Nice save, Joe. Does it remove any LSP in the process?
Its non abrasive, however it does dissolve the water marks. and if your water marks dont come out in the washing process anyway (if you dont act fast enough) this is a sign that it might be time to re-seal or re-wax anyway. This was before I applied Hi-Def Paint Sealant to my Jeep. and my LSP was really starting to lack. If i had HI-Def Paint Sealant I might have been able to get away with a wash being that it was only 1 day and a few hours.

It is wise to re-seal or re-wax the area after this application that way you can avoid having to use the water spot remover gel in the first place. So I would certainly follow behind it with a sealant or even atleast a product like Fast Wax untill you have time to re-seal.
