I tried Windex once to get the water spots off till I read it's no good for the aluminum so I rushed out right after using it snd washed it all off again. So now I'm back wondering what to use

Thanks

Hi Doug,
I use a waterless cleaner from Canadian Tire. It's called "go clean waterless". A little spray (very little) and a wipe with a micro fibre cloth and you are good to go. I do mine in less than 10 minutes. Unless it's covered in Prairie Bugs. Then it takes 10 minutes on the bow. The stuff is expensive but it works. Nice weather you are having there. Jim

To eliminate water spots, I wipe everything down with a soft towel after washing (yes, this means I go over everything twice...wash, then dry). Dry the windows first then the side(s) that are in the sun next. The objective is to get all those water drips off before they have a chance to dry into water spots. ProtectAll is a great way to get rid of water spots on all surfaces. It protects the rubber seals around the windows too.

Thanks Bob - I will check at Canada Tire tomorrow to see what they have...

Wax 2x/year; wash as the weather permits (9/12 months).
