Default Detailing question

My car never usually gets like this, but somehow it did and its annoying. i went to wash it yesterday and after all the light dirt was gone, I noticed these little spots that are like a violet hue. There are so many of them and you can see it while standing next to the car. This stuff wont come off with soap and water that I used. I counted, if I rub it with my nail 7 times they finally disappear. Clay bar helped but its too much work to do the whole car and will take even longer than usual.

Any super cleaners that will like burn this crap off? Anything would help rather than spend 4 hours out there and an entire shoulder workout to get this off.in my picture you can see a bunch of them.

I'm not sure any polish would be much faster than clay. Is it just down the sides or every panel?

Clay Bar!

I know its a nightmare, but when you drive a car that color, gotta put the work in...

I recommend claying the whole car, body scrub polish, and good waxing.

I vote for clay bar too. It may be a pain, but it's the best at removing junk from your paint. I clay my car every other year or so.

Try a magic eraser. Its good at getting tar and other stuff off might work on that.

One of my friends recommended this. It's called a NanoSkin Autoscrub pad. Has anyone used it or heard about it?

It's really tempting to purchase one and a new orbital since the one that I have has 1 speed and its bulky. He recommended it to me over using a clay bar ever again, faster and more effective.

It's all over lol. Quarter panel, spoiler, roof.. but not so much the bottom half of the car. Really the upper portion.

A few years back my wife had hard water stains on her car that I couldn't get rid off. I googled how to get rid of them, and came across a detailing forum and they suggested a vinegar and water solution. That crap actually worked, not sure if it will work in your case. They did tell me though after you use the solution, ensure you put a fresh coat of wax on the vehicle where the mixture was used.

I wound up purchasing an autoscrub pad and slapped it on a new DA orbital (griots 6", needed to update my tools anyway, had a big clunky 10" with one speed and cotton cloth pads).

Its supposedly the future of claybar. And it did just exactly that, 40 minutes my car was completely done, and I had to manually use some clay for the smaller areas and curves. It's spotless
