Have you tried something like detail spray as a drying aid?

Also, a dressing like Adam's SVRT should clear those up without adding too much gloss.

Terrycloth should never be used to dry a car...


Although that's not the cause of your problem here.

And what's the name of the spray wax you are using? If it's actually a wax, then you shouldn't be using that on matte stripes.

Another thought, they may not actually be water spots. Some spray waxes and dressings can leave spots when sprayed onto warm surfaces directly, instead of onto a towel and wiped on to a cool surface.
