I always take my cars to a local hand car wash. I have very hard water and it would be nearly impossible to not leave spots.

nice... well it can be done without a buffer if ya buy some compounds you will want a heavy cut a medium cut and a light/swirl remover cut and 3 foam wax pads and a microfiber xloth from wiling away compounds... with heave cut first like waxing small circular motions with heave pressure youl feel the area heat up wich is good anf u should see the white start to fade and then u work your way to medium cut to the light you can find videos online how to do it but its a basic way of removing scratches without a machine and is very effective. ..
