How To Remove Water Spots & Water RingsThese are remnants either of pure dried water, finishing agents, or the ring outline of a stain. For the first two types, try rubbing the edges of the water spot with a spoon or fingernail to blur them. Dampening the area first with steam may help.
If the outline is evidence of an actual stain with "ingredients" or components (like a food stain or dirt), you will need to follow removal steps for that particular stain, then blur any remaining outlines.
