It's a clay compound that you use to get stuff out of your clear coat. You just spray the surface with some quick detail spray wax, take the clay bar and rub over surface like you would when waxing and then wipe clean with microfiber towel. You have to do just small areas at a time and when you are done, throw a coat of wax over it. You can actually feel a difference in how much smoother your clear coat feels if you do a good job. You can get a clay bar kit at Walmart or auto parts store for about $20. It also makes a good wax job look even better.

Don't know if it will do the trick but it would couldn't hurt either way.

I doubt a clay bar will remove it, they are primarily used for removing overspray and rail dust. Some rubbing/ cutting compound should do the trick if its only heavy water spotting

Or you can get a paint restoration kit that McGuire's has that has cleaning compound, polishing compound, cleaning wax, and wax for about $20. That may not be exactly what's in the kit but hopefully you get the point. Just follow the directions for applying each product. I bought the kit once but now I just by each product.
