Autoglym fast shine and lube has shifted many a water spot for me with ease in the past.
When you polish a car with water spots still present, they will disappear, but that is because they sink in to the clear coat, then after a couple of weeks - a few weeks later they will reappear.
What does a “spritz” do to remove water spots?

I assume that it is also ok on black plastic trim,too?

Thanks.
I'd assume it is, I am not overly cautious when using it and haven't noticed any marks / stains left by it. Just make sure you rinse it of properly (just like any other chemical decontamination).

Just picked up a bottle of FSE and it worked a charm, plus it smelled amazing and made my paint feel super slick afterwards. Would definitely recommend

It’s good stuff, it decontaminates a little, and also lays down a little protection.
Really good on glass, shower screens, taps etc, not just for the car.

AG fast shine and lube always works for me, the spots do not reappear.

Maybe you live in a soft water area so there are little to no mineral / scale deposits left, and maybe you are catching and removing them fairly quickly from when they appear?
I still don’t see how a QD can remove what I know as water spots.

Yeah I do. If you live in the south east, that is a different kettle of fish. When we go there on holiday we cannot get a lather on our soup, the water is so hard, and when washing up on the camp site we notice the water spots if we don't dry the dishes as soon as they are washed. Up here in Lancashire any quick detailer will remove water spots for me.
