After a rain or a thorough cleaning, RV owners might be left with water spots on the sides and windows of their vehicle.
Water spots occur when water left sitting evaporates, leaving behind mineral deposits or pollutants to create a slight outline of the spot. Hard water also tends to leave more water spots behind than soft water.
Shurhold Industries offers advice on how to prevent and remove unsightly water spots.
First, owners should use a filtered hose to reduce pollutants and mineral deposits in the water, according to a news release.
If only really hard water is available, then an inline water softener should be used, too.
Using high-quality soap, such as Shurhold’s Brite Wash, can help prevent water spots, as they often contain an additive that softens the water.
Brite Wash is scientifically formulated to clean fiberglass, clear coat, metal, rubber, and painted surfaces. It cleans dirt, grease, salt, and more without dulling finishes or stripping wax or polish.
Owners shouldn’t use too much soap and rinse well when washing.
The surface should be dried quickly, while washing smaller areas. Owners should not let the RV sun-dry. Wet areas should be squeegee dried, while any still damp surfaces should be wiped with a microfiber cloth or PVA towel to ensure they’re completely dry, states the news release.
Shurhold’s 12-inch SHUR-Dry Flexible Water Blade easily molds to curved surfaces, drying any surface in one-third the time. Since it’s made of rubber, it’s safe to use on even delicate areas and eliminates water-spotting without chamois or towels.
The company’s SHUR-Dry PVA Towel can be used to wipe away any remaining wetness. It absorbs 50 percent more water than natural chamois, making for faster and more effective drying. The towel prevents water spots on all surfaces and comes in an extra-large size of 17 inches x 27 inches.
Owners should also wax regularly. The wax prevents deposits from sinking into the surface and makes them much easier to remove with regular washing.
A 32 oz. bottle of Shurhold’s Brite Wash costs $11.98, while a one gallon supply is $24.98. Shurhold’s Flexible Water Blade is $26.98 and the PVA Towel is priced at $16.98.
