    There isn't a vehicle I own that I don't use Rain-X. I've even put this on my UTV, which doesn't have a windshield wiper, to make the rain shed off of the windshield and allow easier cleaning. I've found that when rain sheds so fast while traveling at highway speeds that the windshield wipers have little improvement to the shedding of the water from my vision. I wish there was a wax that worked this well.

    Like nonstick coating for glass

      Comments about Rain X Original Glass Treatment (3.5 oz.):

      I've used Rain X for over 30 years. It is the first 'accessory' I add to every new car I purchase. Wiper blades last a year or longer, and they seldom 'chatter' because the friction is significantly reduced. On the highway, the aero run-off of rain makes wipers almost unnecessary, although wipers are still handy for removing dirt. In summer, even sun-baked bug splatters are much easier to remove. In winter, Rain X prevents heavy frost from sticking to the glass, so it's much less difficult to remove quickly. For best results, clean all exterior glass before applying Rain X, and apply it twice the first time to ensure full coverage. Then use Rain X washer solutions year-round so you don't have to re-apply Rain X as often.

      Comments about Rain X Original Glass Treatment (3.5 oz.):

      One of the greatest automotive breakthough products ever and classic that should be in every garage. Greatly enhances vision, safety and confidence driving in the rain - especially at night. A little goes a long way and lasts a long time - so one bottle will treat multiple vehicles for years.

      It must be applied properly to perform - two coats with a thorough polishing motion. The surface to be treated must be made as clean as possible. Also note: It is intended exclusively for glass - so do not use on motorcycles or helmets.

          This is the old standby. It's been around a long time and works ike a champ. It is oh so easy to use and improves visiblity during rainy and snowy condiions. You wipe it on, let it dry, and wipe again with a dry cloth. The difference between having a windshield treated with Rain-X and not treated is remarkable. Water beads and rolls right off with the wind, making the windshield much more transparent. If you tried it, you might never be without it again.

            Comments about Rain X Original Glass Treatment (3.5 oz.):

            Application can be a bit challenging, but here is a tip, use a clean wax pad for application. Let it dry, then slightly moisten a terry cloth towel and wipe down the windows, you will find it works best overall for getting the streaks out, makes it look awesome.
            Side benefit is road Bugs, this treatment not only works great for rain driving, but helps keep the windshield clean in country driving as bug particles come right off and don't stick anymore, makes cleaning windshield a breeze.

                  Rainx original has always been a great solution for older windshields that have micro scratches from years of abuse. My 1998 Infiniti I30 had ORIGINAL equipment wiper blades that had NEVER been changed; as a result the windshield has a LOT of micro-scratches that make it extremely tough driving in rainy or nighttime conditions. I tried Rainx when it first came out like 30 years ago and was very impressed; it has gotten even better and I don't even need to turn on the wipers in any light to medium rain! (Of course, I still need to during our typical south Florida "deluges"!)
