Advice from a detailer:

Mr Muscle furniture polish sprayed on a damp microfibre cloth, wipe over paintwork.
Any detailer who gives you that advice isn't a detailer, he's someone pretending to be a detailer and knows how to give a quick 'wow' result with none of the work involved
Ordered:
F Pace S in Ultimate Black running 22" Turbine chrome finish, privacy glass, gloss black window surrounds & LED headlights
Jet 14-way seats with jet headlining and ICTP & TV, mood lighting, electric towbar & more!

Living in a hard water area the water spots were a nightmare. I bought a large DI cartridge and always rinse with it attached to my hose.

I also reccomend using DI water for the screen wash mix - no more smeary wipers.

That’s interesting as it sounds like it’s just like the Aquagleam stuff I bought but they run out after 10 or 20 washes. They are filled with crystals that change could as they filter the water.
Do these cans permanently clean up hard water ? Do they need refills, ?

The resin will eventually need replacing. There is no indicator but you can buy a cheap water hardness meter for a few quid. I’ve used it many rimes and the TDS (total dissolved solids) are at 2ppm. IIRC above 30ppm is when you start to see water spots.
