    Use a damp cloth and wipe the spots off. If that doesn't work, you can try Isopropyl Alcohol instead of water.

    Be careful, though. Isopropyl Alcohol might screw up the paint if you use it for too long.

    Sounds to me like he "spilt" something else on his macbook, but that's just what it sounds like.
    Why would he ask how to wipe a water spot off?

    But yes, a damp cloth will do fine for your "water spot".

    Place Macbook on top of your car or a friends car, drive though carwash 72 times.

    Can you take some pictures of it?

    Did you try using the cloth that was supplied with the MacBook to clean it?

    idk if a picture would work because you have to have it at the right angle to see it
    yeah its almost like a residue like i use shampoo and conditioner but it wont come off :(

    If you don't mind spending money, try buying some iKlear. I've never used it personally, but I heard it works really well. I've also heard that toothpaste works. You could also try a Mr. Clean Magic Eraser.

    But what ever you do, be extremely cautious as to have the computer off while cleaning, and to not get any of the internals or the screen wet.

    Oh, and I'm not responsible for the outcome of how you clean your computer.
