What are light waterspots or water stains and how do I remove them? Light waterspots on your car can be unsightly, but they are also the easiest to remove, especially when addressed promptly.

What are Light Waterspots?

Light Waterspots start out and are typically caused by the less concentrated deposits of minerals like calcium and magnesium — common culprits found in everyday tap water. When left alone for too long, or under heat, they become the monsterous heavy waterspots and finally evolving to the etching waterspots!

How to remove light waterspots?

To remove light waterspots or waterstains, you will need to use a dedicated water spot remover that is safe on automotive paint, or ceramic coatings. Ecoclean AIO Spray is the perfect solution. It’s a gentle yet effective product that requires a simple spray and wipe process. It’s especially gentle and can even be used as a waterless wash!

What Not to use for light waterspots?

Avoid abrasives, wheel acids, undiluted strong APCs (All purpose cleaners) or a scouring steel wool brush!

Reminder: When decontaminating, always work from the least aggressive to the most aggressive. Meaning Try a light waterspot remover, then heavy waterspot remover and if that doesn’t work, you might need to polish it off with an abrasive.

How to Keep Your paint Water Spot Free?

Here’s how you can keep your car’s exterior in pristine condition:

  1. Spot Identification: Begin by identifying the areas with light waterspots. These will usually appear as faint circles or spots on the paint or glass.
  2. Application: Apply Ecoclean AIO Spray directly to the affected areas. Its specialized formula is designed to tackle these light mineral deposits without the need for dilution.
  3. Action: Gently wipe (one direction) off the product with a microfiber towel. The solution encapsulates and lifts the mineral deposits, making it easy to remove them without any rigorous scrubbing that could harm your car’s finish.
  4. Final Rinse: After wiping away the product, give the area a final rinse with clean water. This ensures that all residues are removed and your car’s surface is left spotless and clear.

By incorporating Ecoclean AIO Spray into your regular car care routine, you’re not just removing waterspots — you’re also applying a layer of preventive maintenance that keeps your car looking newer for longer.

If AIO Spray doesn’t work the first round, you can try to do a second pass. If it still doesn’t budge, congrats, its not light waterspots! You’ve got more to look for in removing heavy waterspots and you’ll need Ecoclean Delete. Find out more here on how you can remove waterspots safely!
