White spots on front windscreen surrounds

Hey all,

Today while washing my car I noticed these white spots on the rubber surrounds of the front windscreen. I have no idea what it is and kept rubbing and washing it off but it doesn't come off.

Any idea what it is and how I can get it off? Any help will be appreciated!

Thanks :)

Do you have Autoglym products in the UAE? If it was mine i'd try something like Fast Glass, it's a glass cleaner but can be used on any plastics and rubber and is great at removing wax residue, either that or some other type of automotive all purpose cleaner.
They look like water spots which we get a lot in the UK in hard water areas if left to dry in the sun.

Coming to think of it, I too have similar spots ... Will panel wipe of the gtechniq remove it? Since I have it handy (obviously I spray on a cloth and wipe)

Tnx

Ahh I doubt we get Autoglym here as i've never seen them around. The brands i've seen are 3m, armor all, turtle wax - these are the common cleaners.

Thanks for your help! Will try an all purpose cleaner from one of those brands to see if it helps.

As Jimble said Looks like water spots....... Baby oil will rid those water marks and restore to factory finish;)
