I apply it on my windshield(s) when raining season starts. Seems to work well for me.
I like Rain-X too.
I use their washer fluid, which I think applies the same hydrophobic film. Does that count?
Yes. When I was a charter pilot, I used it on planes, too.
Good stuff! It definitely belongs in this discussion.
I used to apply by hand, but it seems the fluid does the same job and is so much easier.
Wipers work for me
On aircraft we applied with up and down motions, and autos I use circular motion like wax-on, wax-off.
I use the RainX windshield washer fluid. I’ve been using the same windshield wipers for 3 years now, and they are no where needing to be replaced, so there’s another benefit.
Rain X works fine for me too.
Rain x is cool.
Be sure you're not saying, Duuuuuude! Check that out! and run off the road.
Rain-X is only good if you drive at least 45mph, I find. For low speed driving it's not very effective.
I've used the wipe on in the past and converted to the washer fluid hoping for the same results with minimal work... Pleased so far.
That's why it works so well for me.
I'll have to try that with the cops in town next time we have a roadside chat.
Never has my fret-board been so clean and streak-free
I had my car worked on a few months back and they filled it with cleaning fluid like you would smell in a public restroom. Horrible smell after I would use the washer. I have since filled it with a Rain-X solution.
I’ve used it for many years. I can’t find it in Japan, so I buy some whenever I visit the states and bring it home with me.
I've tried Rain X, it does make things bead up well, but it also creates a bit of a smear vs a good clean windshield. Especially at night with headlights coming at you. Bottom line it seems like a detriment not a plus to me.
I've experienced this with the kind you fill your tank with, but not with the concentrate you pour in and then fill the rest with water. I've never used the kind you apply by hand.
It also helps if the water is as clean as possible. Any kind of hardness in the water will show up on the windshield, seeming more so than without using Rain-X.
Beside the washer fluid, I use the window cleaner. It streaks less than windex.
