RainX help

Do you love what RainX does but hate trying to get the greasy hazy film off the windows after applying it?? Well I found a method that makes it a breeze. I put two coats like directed, let it dry to a haze and spray with your favorite detail spray and then using a clean microfiber towel, just wipe it off. No stubborn haze and it still works like RainX should. A real labor saver.

That stuff is AMAZING, especialy at night in a HEAVY rain storm and your drivers side windshield wiper likes to life up off the glass when going down....

What's your personal choice in detail spray, aka, the one that worked?

Yeah, Rain-X is great stuff. Not always the easiest to apply though without leaving streaks...

Applied to a really clean windshield there aren't many streaks. Try clay barring the windshield first! You'll never believe what comes off a "clean" windshield!

rainx windshield washer fluid is the best stuff in the world. i only use in when its winter cause the snow falls off the windshield. Rain x for the rest of the car causes snow to not stick to the side windows or rear window. the snow just falls off.

Rain X is great stuff. I've used it for years, microfiber keeps the streaking and haze down.

I love driving down the road in a big rainstorm. Sometimes I'll see one other car that uses Rain-X. How do I know? Not using his wipers.
