    I have used the Marine Line Hard Water Spot Remover in a pinch on trim/glass/plastics but for paint I'd run down to the local Wal-Mart, Autozone, etc and grab either SwirlX or Ultimate Compound after washing and claying the vehicle.

    ScratchX 2.0 would work well too.

    Are the hard water spots on paint?

    If so, you are safer with the proper paint care products.

    This questions comes up once in a while and the answer is that the M47 Hard Water Spot Remover was formulated for and intended for the type of water spotting common to marine surfaces and for these problems it works pretty well.

    When you jump over the automotive world the biggest problem people have with water spots is the etching the water leaves in the paint, we're taking about a crater in the actual pant and wiping on M47 Hard Water Spot Remover to paint like this isn't going to fix the problem because M47 isn't abrasive and isn't going to remove any paint.

    The way you remove a Type II water spot or etching in the paint is to remove enough paint surrounding the etching to level out the surface. This means using a compound, not a wipe-on, wipe-off liquid.

    Now if the spots you're trying to remove are a mineral deposit, sitting on top of the paint, the it might work and you can certainly test it but again, it was formulated for and intended to be used in Marine applications, not automotive.

    Let us know if it works for you or not.

    For everyone that reads this into the future, the front label does state it's for deposits, those are usually minerals sitting on the surface, not etchings, which are defects in the surface.





    And the back label does address the etching problem with more information as it relates to working on marine surfaces.
