Default Whats the best soap or cleanser for removing water stains on glass and paint?

Bought my wife a Equinox LTZ, gave it a nice cleaning this morning. but I see plenty of water spots I will need to do a deeper clean to remove. What do you all recommend as the best soap or cleanser to remove that?

Or will I need to claybar the vehicle and re-wax to take them out?

Any advice is appreciated.

Nice looking rig! You don't see too many of those in LTZ.

I guess I'm a little confused at what you're talking about? Shoudln't water spots come off easily just with a wash and dry? Can you take a closer pic?

I sure will. The wife is at work and I am in night classes. But I will get a good picture in the sun with the spots. They look to be from prolonged sitting unwashed, typical build up. I am just trying to find a strong soap but wont hurt the wax/paint but if I have to clay bar the whole thing then I will. I will hate it the whole time but it will be worth it.

Yeah she drove an LTZ, LT, and LS in 2014, 15, and 16. So we rode around in all the trims and past years. I have the Denali in my Sierra so she already knew she wanted the spoiled and pampered package. But did her due diligence on all of them.

I was surprised how much room there was inside and the move-able and reclining rear seats were a feature I didnt expect but was blown away with the technology in the car.

So they were hard water spots from the previous owners sprinkler system which was well water fed. What did the trick was having a friend buff,condition and wax the entire thing with a 3 in one solution from Meguiars. I dont recall the name but its a light finishing wax with a polish and conditioner in it. Took all of it off. Looks like brand new now. Will take an updated picture.

Now I can keep it clean with the Gold Class soap and conditioner.
