Domestic water supply tends to be very hard in this area Rolling Eyes it is the lime in it that leaves the marks when drying No

Rain water tends to be soft and won't leave the marks, but I'm sure Taylor will tell you it contains impurities from the atmosphere Mad

I've often washed the car in the rain then rinsed and the rain water has then washed the domestic water away and guess what Question no water marks Smile

Can always wax when dry Wink
