We have just bought a new f'ver and I washed it for the first time today. There are water spots all over it, I used the same soap as I have in the past, although the last f'ver was aluminum siding and this one is fiberglass. So any suggestions that are not hard on the wallet and not time consuming are appreciated. Yes we have a water softener and part of the problem is how hard our water is. So any help is appreciated.

A good coat of wax helps the water to run off easier. We only wash one side at a time so the drips and drops are not sitting there for too long. Do you dry it? When we dry it, we do small sections at a time and use a slightly damp rag first then go over it with a dry one.

Meguiars Ultimate Wash and Wax. Same as I use on our cars. We don't have hard water so no spots.

Does your outside water go through the softener? It’s not common to soften the water going to outside faucets.

Our water is so bad you can barely see through the windows of a vehicle if you hose them off and let it dry. I scrub things at home, then drive to town for a final rinse at the car wash.

Well it's time consuming and requires labour but I always chamois mine dry before the water dries and leaves spots.

This is what we use and wouldn't use anything else. The bottle says to towel dry, but we don't and we have a spotless finish. Our water also goes through our water softener, so that may help. We also use this on our car and truck.
