Question Removing mineral deposits

Here's the problem:

I drove my dad to the cancer clinic at University of Chicago Medical Center for a checkup. However the only parking available at their (rather crap-tastic) parking garage at 58th Street was on the roof level. So what's mounted on beams spanning the roof level above the remaining parking spots? Yeah, a series of evaporative cooling type A/C units for the adjacent buildings. So these things manage to concentrate Chicago's hard water before spewing it out in a drizzle of droplets all over the parked cars below.

What a nice way to -over the patients and visitors, right? Whoever was the person behind that design decision seriously deserves a swift kick in the nads.

Anyhow, the problem as it is now - how to get all these damn mineral spots off of my car? The glass in particular, obviously typical glass cleaners don't cut it.

A clay bar should removed them from both the windshield and paint. Make sure you thoroughly wash the areas before and wax/seal after.

Give it a really thorough washing, using a car wash soap and something non-abrasive. If that doesn't work, clay would be the next course of action. That SHOULD take care of it, but I'm gathering that your paint damage isn't typical waterspots.
