White water lines

Okay so my front door on the wrangler has a stained water line running down the door. The Jeep is black and I cant seem to get it to come off. It goes away when I clean it but then comes back when it drys back up. Any thoughts?

Funny, my Jeep is white, and I get black lines running down the sides.
Mine just wash off though.

Here's what I would do. If it's a hard water mark, soak a terry cloth rag in vinegar and place it over the stain for about thirty minutes, rub it gently with the vinegar soaked rag to help break it loose. Then wash it as normal.

Use Meguiars Cleaner Wax and if you have an orbital buffer, go to work on it. If no buffer, they are under $30 all over the place and a great investment. If that's not in your budget, then good old fashioned elbow grease and cleaner wax should do the trick. Use a wax applicator pad and - rubbidy dub dub it.

The cleaner wax has a very mild abrasive in it that can help remove the residue and other minor imperfections.

When you're all finished, put a couple of nice coats of Meguiars Gold Class wax on it (all over!) to help prevent the water spots from sticking.

Its coming from your rear view mirror. Water tends to collect inside and slowly drips out leaving the marks. Drill a little hole at the bottom of the mirror frame to let it flow. Otherwise to clean just use your favorite vehicle polish to gently remove such stain's.

All of the above, and if all else fails, take a claybar after it. Drill the holes, claybar it off, wax it and it should be all better... Really you should claybar the whole Jeep, and after you see/feel what it does under the doors, you'll probably want to.... Sorry, the detailer in me comes out sometimes.

Can you post a picture of where exactly you drilled the holes? I need to do this asap because those lines are irritating!

This is what i do after washing my jeep. When it is still wet.I start up my gas leaf blower and blow all the water off. This works fantastic. Works great for your rims and tires. Then just go back and touch up with your favorite cloth.
