Customer Reviews

Depending on how much you use your wipers, you can go quite a while without having to reapply it.
Koko the Talking Ape
After a month and a half of bearing a brutal Rhode Island winter (snow, sleet, rain, hail, road salt, dirt) without me garaging my car it STILL is working!
JMH
Application was easy: thoroughly clean the windshield, apply the stuff with a cloth in circular motions, let it dry for a few minutes, and wipe off.

What is good about this stuff?

- As others have pointed out, it makes glass hydrophobic, meaning it causes water to bead up. That means that water, and the dirt that comes with it, is easier to push off the glass with wipers, keeping the glass cleaner. Also, it is easier to see through wet glass when the water is beaded up, so you might not need to use the wipers as much. Also, if you are travelling at high enough speed (typically highway speed), the wind will blow water off the glass, so again, you might not need to use the wipers. (Interestingly, the more your windshield is "raked" or slanted, the higher speed you need.)

- It makes glass easier to clean. Dust and even snow and ice sweep off pretty easily. Dried bugs come off more easily.

- It lasts pretty long for what it is. There are other products, like waxes, that do something similar for auto paint, but wax wears off fairly quickly. If you tried to use something like wax on windshield glass, the wipers would rub the wax off quickly. RainX bonds very tightly to the glass, in a very, very thin coating, making it hard to wear off. Depending on how much you use your wipers, you can go quite a while without having to reapply it.

- It isn't all that expensive.

What is bad about it?

- It seems to use alcohol as a solvent (and not the good kind of alcohol either), so the fumes can make you dizzy, especially when you are doing a large area of glass.

- (The real problem) It works great when it is newly applied, but when it begins to wear off, it is worse than nothing. When the wipers begin to wear through the RainX coating, you get thin streaks where the water is sticking to the glass. It actually looks worse than if you had never used RainX at all.

This stuff is the best example I can think of, of a product that not only works but far exceeded my expectations. As one reviewer mentioned, it will cause wintertime ice to easily flake off. Ditto for summertime bug removal. It repels rain so well that it is a viable alternative to doing an expensive windshield wiper mechanism repair (for those of us that drive old cars). I work as a highway patrolman (er . . patrolperson) for a living, and quickly learned that windshield wipers tend to lift off of the windshield when when having to drive at 80-90+. No problem with Rain-X as this is where it works best -- aided by the wind to blow your windshield clear. MANY TIMES I have driven to a call at high speed, in blinding downpour rain, with my wipers turned off and seeing perfectly (and enjoying my coffee), while other traffic is stopped on the shoulder or crowded in under bridge overpasses (I still can't figure out the purpose of that) due to no visibility. And I find that it lasts for several weeks on a car that is not garaged. My highest recommendation. Three thumbs up! Oops - make that two thumbs up.

In heavy rain at highway speeds, Rain-X is amazing. Water blows off the windshield faster than the wipers can remove it. In light rain, or at slower speeds, there is little advantage to Rain-X.
Where Rain-X becomes a serious danger is in misty, foggy conditions or if there is dew on the glass. Under these situations, there appears to be too little water to form large enough beads for the wipers to remove, resulting in a heavy haze that will NOT be removed by your wipers(or quickly reforms). Driving into the low morning sun/oncoming headlights etc. with that type of haze results in inpenatrable glare that makes safe driving impossible. I have experienced this effect in different cars and using various forms of Rain-X (the above liquid and the premixed washer fluid.) Because of this very dangerous side effect, I cannot recommend Rain-X if you live in an area where dew or misty conditions occur.

I have been using this product for 10 years and it has never failed me.

Three things to do before your first application to ensure excellent results:
- Get new wipers, or clean the road grime off the old ones. Use a paper towel, soaked with rubbing alcohol. You will be surprised how much black gunk comes off your wiper blades before they are clean.
- Use an "auto glass stripper" to scrub and clean your windshield. If your windshield is 2+ years old, it will have road grime residue that is invisible. The auto glass stripper is an abrasive liquid compound that will take all the road grime off. It will also take Rain-X residue off. It just scrubs the glass down to its pristine, original finish.
- When repeated applications of Rain-X doesn't seem to work as well as it did the first time, clean the wipers and scrub the windshield with the auto glass stripper again.

Your windshield doesn't have to be totally squeaky clean for Rain-X to work. I have splashed Rain-X over questionable rental-car windshields before, and I still got excellent results. I always keep Rain-X and a roll of paper towels in my car.

Just fling some over a spot on the windshield, rub it in with the paper towel, let it dry, buff off the residue, use your windshield wiper fluid and wipers to get the excess off, and enjoy.
